Magical Moonshine Theater Presents Puppetry Performances
The Three Little Pigs and Puppylocks and the Three Bears!
Magical Moonshine Theater are master storytellers who engage young audiences with their amazing puppetry and masquerade. They will perform two different shows for us in celebrarion of Summer Reading here in Santa Cruz. Performances are via Zoom and registration is required to get the Zoom link.
Both performances are on Saturday July 18
The Three Little Pigs: 11:00 am
Three pigs set out to seek their fortunes with a bit of house building. Things don't go as planned in this creative retelling of the traditional story; houses collapse, pigs and wolves play together and audience members help the story along with lots of live music, singing, construction and laughter. Presented with traditional Bohemian style marionettes on a tabletop stage.
Puppylocks and the Three Bears: 3:00 pm
WHAT IF? What if the Three Bears were really Teddy Bears! And What if Goldilocks was not a little girl at all, but a golden, mischievous little dog? That is exactly the case is this very funny retelling of the traditional fairytale. Watch this impish little dog do everything wrong in the Bear's house while the bears are off to the TEDDYBEAR CIRCUS! Puppylocks is presented with traditional Bohemian style marionettes on a tabletop stage.
This program is part of our Summer Reading Program, Imagine Your Story. Register at santacruzpl.org/srp.
