Family Fun for ages 4 and up!

Looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend? Great family fun is happening at The Public Theatre on Sunday, May 20th at 2pm when the Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers perform their award-winning show, Everybody Loves Pirates!

Eight-year-old Lucy and her goofy pal Little Chucky are searching for buried treasure, but a gang of bumbling pirates keeps getting in the way!  The kids get some help from their new ocean-dwelling friends, including enthusiastic superhero Lobster Boy, his reluctant sidekick Crabby, and an overgrown sea monkey.

Everybody loves Pirates features 15 hand-crafted mouth and rod puppets, and an 8-foot paper Mache pirate ship. Almost an hour in length, the show is perfect for children ages 4 and up.

Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers is a puppetry troupe based in Bar Harbor, Maine and is comprised of three siblings. Founded in 2000, Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers have received 3 Citations of Excellence from UNIMA-USA, the highest national award for puppetry!

Tickets for Everybody Loves Pirates! are only $5 for anyone 4-18, and $10 for adults. For tickets call 782-3200 or visit www.thepublictheatre.org
