Two classic tales are on stage at PuppetWorks now through Dec. 21 with special performances on Columbus Day and Veterans Day.
Both tales by Hans Christian Andersen are a perfect fit for children 3 years and older.
Adapted for the marionette stage by director Nicolas Coppola, “The Emperor’s New Clothes” is the story of a vain emperor who buys a set of invisible clothes only to march down the street in his underwear. “The Snow Queen,” (the source story for Disney’s “Frozen”) is the story of a mysterious lady who throws ice into the heart of a boy so that he becomes cold and mean. The story is accompanied by Norwegian Folk Songs.
Performances are on Saturdays and Sundays through Dec. 21 at 12:30 and 2:30 pm with special performances on Oct. 13 and Nov. 11. Tickets are $ 8 for children, $9 for adults and $7 for groups of 20 or more.
