Joe Pipik’s Backpack Puppets will present “The Rainbow Show,” a free interactive puppet performance, at the Hawaii State Library’s Edna Allyn Room for Children on Saturday, January 24 at 10:30 a.m.
“The Rainbow Show,” a zany variety program, features hand and rod puppets in an assortment of hilarious sketches on a portable stage built on a camping-style backpack. Paddy Hobart is joined by his dog Tuxedo, his cat Silky, and mischievous monkey Jogi as they take the audience on a fun-filled journey in search of the colors of a rainbow.

Actor, puppeteer, juggler, songwriter, musician, and education consultant, he is a master artist with Wolf Trap’s Early Learning Institute.
