See 'Three Little Pigs' And More At Roanoke Island Festival Park
Roanoke Island Festival Park has announced a new addition to their children’s performance series, as Grey Seal Puppets will present a unique esperience that combines The Three Little Pigs, Three Billy Goats Gruff, and The Frog Prince into one production live on stage this month.
Each story is told in a different style using a variety of puppets, including hand and rod control.
Along with these familiar tales of childhood, you will discover a whole menagerie of zany characters. A skinny ant dances a lively jig; “block heads” learn how to get around; and the zaniest creatures of all, the “Wobblies,” open the forty-five minute show with an extraordinary ballet choreographed to Kablevsky’s “The Comedian’s Suite.”
”The Frog Prince,” from Germany, teaches the importance of promise; Three “Billy Goats Gruff”, from Scandinavia, warns us against Gluttony and the “Three Little Pigs”, from England, is all about doing the right job.
The production has been performed in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Detroit Institute of Art, The Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, and other locations nationwide, and it has received several awards including: Three UNIMA-USA Citations of Excellence; The President’s Award from The Puppeteers of America, and the NC Theatre Conference Award for Leadership in Theatre.
This family-friendly production will be held in the Indoor Theatre at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo on Wednesday, June 25; Thursday, June 26; and Friday, June 27; starting at 10:30am each morning.
Tickets are $5 and may be purchased in advance at the ticket office at Festival Park or on the day of the event. Admission is free for ages 5 and under.
This event is sponsored by Friends of Elizabeth II.
