BIG BAG OF LAUGHS is the latest hilarious show from The Paper Bag Players, America’s longest-running theater for children.

With dancing houses, singing garbage cans, trees that run, and a tug-of-war between a chicken and an apple, BIG BAG OF LAUGHS positively overflows with zany fun, lyrical movement, and paper & cardboard props and sets from the world of children’s playtime. In the classic number, “Tree Angel,” trees, with a little help from the audience and their very own angel, discover how to outsmart a woodchopper. In “That’s Quite Absurd!” a girl and a bird meet on a park bench and become fast friends. Classic sketches include “Dandelion,” a whimsical song about the cycles of nature, and “Knock, Knock, Knock” a rousing dance for slender cardboard houses where neighbors tell each other the silliest jokes. These and many more surprises lie in wait in the uproarious and fantastical world of THE PAPER BAG PLAYERS BIG BAG OF LAUGHS.
