Wow, what a epic summer 2014 has been! We kicked-off our 40th Anniversary Season with an exciting series of adventure tales in July, and now our Fall Fairy Tale Festival is just around the corner. Join us for our last Summer Puppet Adventures performance this Labor Day weekend featuring the world's sneakiest squirrel. Hold on to your underpants, because this show by local artist Bonnie Duncan is sure to knock your socks off!
About the show: Sylvie 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. Will our lonely heroine rescue her underpants and discover the magic within herself? Join us on this adventure to find out!
