The Pied Piper of Hamelin
The town of Hamelin has a rat problem, and there's only one person who can help! CactusHead Puppets brings the story of The Pied Piper to life in this comedic, updated adaptation of the traditional folktale. Not only does the town find a musical solution to pest control, but the kids of Hamelin also teach the grownups a lesson about generosity. In the end, the townspeople all come together in celebration. Join puppeteers John and Megan Regan as they present this classic tale, told with multiple puppetry styles, and plenty of dancing rats!
Rod Puppet Workshop
We'll start with a demonstration of a few different types of puppets, focusing on rod puppets. Then each participants will get to create their own simple rod puppet, learn some performance basics, and demonstrate their finished puppet for the group!
Space is limited in the workshop, please visit the library's website to register or find more information on both programs.
