“It’s a common problem. I wish more people would talk about it,” said Aimsel, a colleague, after hearing about the upcoming puppet performance of “Squirrel Stole My Underpants.”

You’re right, Aimsel. It is a common problem.

The “Squirrel Stole My Underpants” show, performed by award-winning puppeteer Bonnie Duncan oat 2 pm on March 3, kicks off the Mostly Puppet Festival at Mayo Street Arts in Portland.

According to the press release, “Bonnie Duncan is a Jim Henson award winning puppeteer who grew up in the South and recently premiered ‘Squirrel Stole My Underpants’ at Boston’s Puppet Showplace Theater.

“‘Squirrel Stole My Underpants’ tells the story of Sylvie who is sent to the backyard to hang up the laundry. The moment her back is turned, a mischievous squirrel steals her favorite piece of clothing and runs off. When Sylvie gives chase, an entire world emerges from her laundry basket, and curious characters show her the way through mysterious lands.”

Breathe easy, people with missing underpants. You are not alone.

Tickets are $4 kids/$8 adults. FMI: mayostreetarts.org
