Puppetry returns to East Brunswick library

February 11, 2014 by  

The winter months might be dreary and cold for some of us, but the Friends of the Library in East Brunswick are going to give families something to smile about.

The Phyllis Noar Puppetry Festival will return to the library later this month for two weekends. Each day will feature a performance from a different puppet company. The Friends of the Library could use poster printing to spread the word to parents and teachers.

Tuckers’ Tales Puppet Theatre will kick off this year’s festival with “Cirkus” on Sunday, February 16. The performance starts at 2:00 pm and will feature a ringmaster, a circus band, and clowns. Throughout the show, the ringmaster and his assistant will try to keep the circus going while setbacks, such as messed up magic tricks and animals on the loose, get in the way. The zany show should keep the whole family entertained.

The next Sunday, February 23, the Robert Rogers Puppet Company will come to the library to present ‘The Bugtown Follies’. The show takes an up-close look at insects and finds that they are doing a number of unexpected activities, such as singing, clowning, and acting.

Tickets for both shows are now on sale and can be purchased at the library circulation desk for $4 per person. The library is accepting checks made out to E.B. Friends of the Library or cash, only. To see either show, children need to be at least three-years-old.
