Reviews
The Doubtful Sprout is a delightful experience! Liz Joyce is a master of telling scientific stories creatively, breathing life into wonderful and complex characters with emotion and voice. The Doubtful Sprout will entertain and educate all that experience it!
— Paul Robinson, Puppeteers of America Executive Director

The Doubtful Sprout is a magical and educational show that mesmerizes children and teaches them about ecology and life cycles through art and song. Liz's performance is enchanting and engages children to the very end. As a puppeteer Liz knows how to include her audience while effortlessly working her craft. The quality of her set-up and puppets, in which the influence of classic Henson artistry may be seen, is top-notch. Children joyfully participate throughout the show and are even delighted after the show when Liz buzzes through the audience to meet them. Developmentally and educationally appropriate for a wide age range, the entire family will enjoy the show!
