Puppet Performance: Under Night Sky
Puppetkabob artist Sarah Frechette invites you to follow three children on journeys united by threads of courage, love and hope. By blending hand-held lights, illustrated paper puppets, music and character storytelling Frechette creates a style of cinematic puppetry that flows like film. You'll unravel the stories of the Underground Railroad stitched together in Grandmother's patchwork quilt, hear the waves crash aside the ship as you listen to the magical tale of an Irish Memory Quilt and quietly enter an Old School House to see a girl proudly wearing her coat of rags, stitched to patchwork perfection.
Directly following the performance, the puppeteers will lead a hands-on puppet workshop.
All ages welcome.
