Pico and the Golden Lagoon
'Pico and the Golden Lagoon' is an enchanting adventure story about courage, new friendships, and the wonders of nature. Pico is a world traveler who flies around in a yellow bi-plane. On her adventures, she is introduced to new eco ideas through the characters in the stories. Pico is in the middle of a mail run when all of a sudden her plane runs out of fuel and she is forced to make a crash landing on a nearby island. Here she meets David, a marooned naturalist, who shows her the charms of the island. Pico meets many wonderful characters including Lou a dragon who lives in a cave at the edge of the lagoon. Does Lou guard the solution to Pico’s empty fuel tank? How will the story unfold? Created from re-purposed and recycled materials, using puppetry, live music, and storytelling.
In-school performances are available on request.
