The Princess, the Unicorn, and the Smelly Foot Troll at Downtown Phoenix's Great Arizona Puppet Theater

The setup: Great Arizona Puppet Theater, an outstanding cultural resource since 1983, is currently presenting a revival of one of its most popular original shows, The Princess, the Unicorn, and the Smelly Foot Troll. (Preschool audiences age out of shows within a few years, while another mini-generation has reached toddlerhood to fill in for them.)
