“The 21st Century Peter and the Wolf!”
“Doctor Kaufman’s The Musical Forest builds on the tradition of Stravinsky’s L’histoire du Soldat and Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, creating a unique performance work that entertains and educates in an original work of art.” – Emmy Winning composer Joe Carroll who worked with Jim Henson for over 25 years.

THE PHANTASTIC THEATER – New Music and Art for People of All Ages
“The Musical Forest opens children’s ears to the sounds of Classical Music, delivers the many benefits of music education and enthralls the imagination!”
THE STORY: Squiggle T. Buglet adventures through The Musical Forest, learning music words and playing music adventure games with her teacher friends. At the end of each episode Squiggle is awarded a ‘seed pod’ for fundamentals of music; rhythm, melody and hearing tones, harmony and the families of instruments.
Squiggle is gathering these seed pods to visit “The Mysterious Cave of Doctor Soundartus” and make music on his Magic Music Wall, which she does at the conclusion.
During her adventures, Squiggle must cross ‘The Bridge’ to reach different parts of the forest. At these junctures, Little Troll pops up and makes her pass tests and riddles on what she has just learned in the previous episode. At the end, Squiggle and Little Troll make friends and visit The Mysterious Cave of Doctor Soundartus together.
