Your family will love the marionettes this Friday night.
Looking for a fun family event this weekend, the award-winning National Marionette Theatre will be presenting “Peter and The Wolf” for the general public on Friday, Oct. 4, at 7 p.m. at Walsh Common at the Lincolnville Central School. The production is family-friendly and suitable for all ages.
Based on the original Russian Folktale, the National Marionette Theatre’s version of the story features the beautiful music from Prokofiev’s orchestral score combined with stunning scenery and hand crafted marionettes. Set in turn of the century Russia, the production tells the story of how Peter, along with his animal friends, captures the wolf.
The production is sponsored by Waldo County General Hospital. There is no admission fee, although donations will be accepted at the door.
The show will also be presented three times at the Clifford Performing Arts Center at Mt. View for school children and once for students at the Lincolnville Central School. The performances at Mt. View are co-sponsored by Waldo County General Hospital, Searsport Counseling Associates and the Clifford Performing Arts Center.
