When the evil Haman threatens the Jews of Persia, it's up to the brave Esther and her clever uncle Mordecai to save the day in this puppet Purim Spiel. Beauty contests, a partying King and a lottery of doom await in this extremely silly Megillah. Can our heroes unravel Haman's plot in time to save the Jews of Persia? Go, Esther, Go!
