Puppet Show at the Library!

Posted by Rosanna McInnes, Seldovia OWL Manager on June 13, 2014


Join us at the Seldovia Public Library on Wednesday, June 18th at 7 p.m. for a live presentation of Beauty and the Beast.   Presented by Stevens Puppets, Beauty and the Beast is a touching and humorous marionette play full of chuckles and drama.  Artistic staging and clever effects accented with beautiful harp music bring this ever popular classic triumphantly to life.   This is a family event.   The Seldovia Public Library would like to thank major sponsors Tim & Joan Dillon of Jotimax, and additional supporters, Susan Mumma of Crazy Crow Concerts, and The Seldovia Arts Council, for helping us make this happen.  We’ll see you there!
