Puppets in the Museum Courtyard

Kasperletheater is the German name for a Punch and Judy show, with Kasper being the main character.

Last Sunday (30th July, 2017) a show was held in the courtyard of the Vortaunusmuseum in which Seppel, who is Kasper’s best friend, annoyed the witch so much that she turned him into a giant.  Only someone who was not afraid of him could turn him back to his normal size.

It was up to the children to help Kasper to help his friend, for which they were rewarded with sweets and balloons.
