Music and puppetry presented by PCPA
August 17, 2012 by Sarah
On Wednesday, August 29, the Portland Center for Performing Arts (PCPA) Noontime Showcase will be presenting the Red Yarn Puppet Band at the Portland Center for Performing Arts in Portland, Oregon. This performance begins at 12:00 pm and, at just forty-five minute drive from Longview, Washington, offers a great day out for children of all ages.
The Red Yarn Puppet Band is an interactive musical puppet performance filled with songs and animated stories about animals, including the Br’er Rabbit tales. During this performance, guests will enjoy 60s folk songs, country, rockabilly, and other music from the early American period. Members of this group switch easily between instruments and puppetry, which means that one minute the member is performing amid a gaggle of animated critters, and as part of a marching band the next.
The noontime summer showcase, of which this is the last performance, attempts to feature international dance and song. Guests are invited to bring their lunch, or buy it at the event, and enjoy the fresh air in this popular outdoor setting. There are art activities available on the grounds and the farmers’ market is just next door, so there is plenty for everyone to do around this performance.
Poster printing and digital flyer printing may have been used to promote this fun family activity to local residents and those in the surrounding communities. Admission is free and the afternoon should be a great way for parents spend quality time with their kids. For more information, please visit the PCPA website or call the box office during regular business hours.
