Summer Reading Program: Dreamtime, Tales from Down Under with Barefoot Puppets
July 23, 2018 @ 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
The Summer Reading Program Series is in partnership with The Handley Regional Library.
Experience the magic of “The Land Down Under” in this performance inspired by Aboriginal folktales. A young platypus, Billy, has a tough time being nocturnal. Going to sleep in the middle of the day? His mother tries to help him settle in by sharing three stories from the Australian Dreamtime. In these “How and Why” tales, you’ll learn how the emu became a flightless bird and why the platypus looks so strange. In the final story, you’ll even meet a giant, bloated, ocean-swallowing frog!
Will the world survive the loss of water? Will Billy EVER fall asleep?
Doors open at 10:00 and program starts at 10:30 PM
