Tanglewood Marionettes: The Fairy Circus, April 13

The Auburn Public Library is pleased to host The Tanglewood Marionettes in a performance of The Fairy Circus. This special performance is an 80th birthday celebration for long-time community volunteer, Pat Masonheimer. The Fairy Circus will be held at 2 PM, Saturday, April 13th at Schaeffer Theatre at Bates College on 329 College Street in Lewiston.

Tanglewood Marionettes’ presentation of The Fairy Circus begins with a brief demonstration of the art of puppetry. Through humorous interplay, the audience will learn about various forms of puppets, from the simple glove puppet to the sophisticated marionette. Featuring over twenty beautifully hand-crafted marionettes, The Fairy Circus is a showcase for turn-of-the-century-style trick puppetry. The puppets will dance, play instruments, juggle, contort, transform, and fly through the air with the greatest of ease, all to the best-loved music of favorite composers.

Birthday cake and juice will follow the performance. Tickets will be available in the children’s room with a suggested donation of $2 to benefit children’s programming at the library. Please call the library at 333-6640 ext.3 or stop by to reserve your tickets. All are welcome. This event is co-sponsored by the Masonheimer/Wallace Family.

Date:Saturday Apr 13, 2019 Time:2:00 PM  –  3:00 PM

This event will be held at Bates College, but please reserve tickets in the Children’s Room prior to the event.
