Palm Sunday with Puppets

There are stories that are too old and too familiar but need to be retold, replayed, and restaged.  The life and death of Jesus Christ is the story that we all know but there will always a creative way to narrate it . I just watched Papet Pasyon, a puppet play  depicting the life and crucifixion of Christ. This was staged at Teacher’s Village in Quezon City by Teatrong Mulat ng Pilipinas, the first in children’s theater and puppetry in the Philippines. Amelia Lapeña-Bonifacio, Mulat founder, wrote the Papet Pasyon in 1985. Teatro Mulat has been performing  Papet Pasyon for free every Palm Sunday of the year. They hope to bring Christ’s story closer to children through puppetry.
