Nancy Tyndall, creator of the Milkweed Puppet Theater, will bring her show “The Sun’s Sister” to the Belfast Free Library, 106 High St., for a 6:30 p.m. show Wednesday, July 27.

“The Sun’s Sister” is a colorful fairytale from Lapland about friendship and the world of the sky. Camping beside a lake are two friends, a peasant named Lars and a prince. When Lars wins both of their playful contests, the jealous prince sends him away on a daunting quest to find a golden bird. A mysterious fox steps in to help, leading Lars first to the palace of Sunrise and then to the candlelit cave of an amorous troll who is drinking tea with Sunset.

The Milkweed Puppet Theater is a one-woman troupe featuring Nancy Tyndall of Montville. She has traveled throughout the state for more than 20 years, performing original shows and teaching puppetry.

“Stories are like a fairytale herd of cows in a nutshell: something that children want to hold onto for the wonder and the laughter, yet something that gives them courage and the comfort of a loving tale,” she said.

This program is free and open to the public.  For more information, contact the library at 338-3884, ext. 24.
