EXPLORE THE ARTS: STEVENS PUPPETS: THE WIZARD OF OZ

Saturday, July 17, 2021
11am & 2pm

Lions and Tigers and Puppets, oh my! In this classic heart-warming tale, beautifully adapted for marionettes by Martin Stevens and Dan Raynor, children of all ages will watch with bated breath as a Kansas cyclone whisks Dorothy off to Oz where she befriends the Scarecrow, who wants brains, the Tin Woodman, who wants a heart, and the Cowardly Lion, who wants courage.  Together they set off on a journey to find the mysterious Wizard of Oz while evading the delightfully silly Wicked Witch of the West.  World leaders in the puppetry arts for over 80 years,  Stevens Puppets bring this tale to life with artfully hand-carved wooden marionettes and a musical score you are sure to be humming all the way home.  Don’t miss The Wizard of Oz! After each performance, puppeteers provide a 5 minute demonstration of how the marionettes operate.
