Children and their parents filled the City Council Chambers this morning to see the Shadow Puppet Workshop – with some lucky kids getting to participate in putting on the show. Daniel Barash (pictured), who is the master behind the Workshop, has pioneered the use of shadow puppetry, an ancient art form. He’s performed his one-man educational theater program for more than 100,000 students across the United States. And today he was in Menlo, thanks to a program sponsored by Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
