The Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry at the University of Connecticut and the Puppet Arts Program will present "Fernweh" by Puppet Arts Program MFA candidate Dana Samborski from Thursday through Sunday, May 28-31, 2015. There will be three evening performances Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and two matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m., in the Ballard Institute Theater located at 1 Royce Circle in Storrs Center.

In this fantastical parlor show, an itinerant storyteller takes the audience on a quest through a fairy-tale land. When a bridge troll is given a chance to go on one last adventure, he leaves his family at home and sets out. Along the way he discovers new sides to some familiar faces. Will our hero learn what is most important before it’s too late? Bring your friends to this raucous romp!
