Thursday, August 2
11:00 – 11:45 a.m.
Puppeteer and puppet-maker Nicola McEldowney will present Many Moons, a puppet show for ages 5 and up.
Based on the classic tale by James Thurber, Many Moons tells the story of the Princess Lenore, who falls ill from a surfeit of raspberry tarts and can only get better if somebody brings her the moon. An impossible feat, you say? Tell that to her father the King, who’s determined to get her the moon with the “help” (if you can call it that) of his royal wise men … and perhaps a certain court jester. A gentle and funny tale of wisdom, impossible possibilities, and blue poodles!
