Blue Hill Public Library is bringing Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers back to Blue Hill to do a performance of The Legend of the Banana Kid, on Saturday, September 29 at 6:00 PM in the Bay School’s Emlen Hall. Little Chucky heads to the Wild West to outwit outlaws in this cowboy adventure! With a fistful of bananas, Chucky rides into town on his trusty goat for a showdown with Big Bad Bart and his gang of bandits.
Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers is a small puppetry troupe based in Bar Harbor consisting of three siblings – Erik and Brian Torbeck and Robin Erlandsen. Founded in 2000, Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers has performed at festivals, schools, libraries and theatres in the United States and Canada. They write and create all the shows they perform and have received three Citations of Excellence from UNIMA-USA, the highest national award in puppetry.
Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of Blue Hill Library, admission for the puppet show is free. Reservations are not necessary. For more information, call the library at 374-5515.
