Everybody Loves Pirates!

Date & Time: 
Mar 17 2018 - 11:00am - 3:30pm

Everybody Loves Pirates!
by Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers

Friday, March 16th Puppet Building Workshop at 4-5 PM at the Putney General Store, $10
Saturday, March 17th two public performances at 11 AM and 2 PM at Sandglass Theater, $9

Featuring 15 hand-crafted mouth and rod puppets, and an 8 foot paper-maché pirate ship.
Eight-year-old Lucy and her goofy pal Little Chucky are searching for buried treasure, but a gang of bumbling pirates keeps getting in the way! The kids get some help from their new ocean-dwelling friends, including enthusiastic superhero Lobster Boy, his reluctant sidekick Crabby, and an overgrown sea monkey.

Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers is a puppetry troupe based in Bar Harbor, Maine, and comprised of three siblings- brothers Erik and Brian Torbeck and sister Robin (Torbeck) Erlandsen. Founded in 2000, Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers has performed at festivals, schools, libraries and theater in the United States and Canada. They write and create all the shows they perform and have received three Citations of Excellence from UNIMA-USA, the highest national award in puppetry.

WORKSHOP: Participants will be guided through a step by step process of how to make a puppet character of their very own, using socks, cardboard, hot glue guns, fur, feathers and other assorted materials. For ages 7 and up.
