Carnival of the Animals
Robert Rogers Puppet Company
Tuesday, July 10, 11:00AM and 1:30PM

A musical menagerie of feathers, furs, fins, and fun!  Set to the melodies of composer Camille Saint-Saens’ classical suite for orchestra.  It’s part trip to the zoo and part vaudeville revue!  The mighty lion, the lumbering tortoise, the graceful swan, the piano-playing monkey, the rainbow of fish, the high-jumping kangaroo…are just some of the line-up of talented creatures who take to the stage one by one to display their unique talents.  What makes things especially magical is that they’re all puppets, brought to life by Robert Rogers, who made them, too!

For ages 3 to 9.
