13th Annual Stuffed Animal Sleepover
Back with a brand-new show, Rose and Justin of Modern Times Theater have continue to update a classic puppet show full of laughs and music which follows the troubles and travails of puppetry’s favorite loudmouth, Mr. Punch. The skillfully operated hand puppets are made of upcycled materials, and are full of surprises and tricks, as is the elaborate stage. It’s a low-tech, old-time spectacle, entertaining to the young and the young at heart. By taking the best from the long tradition of Punch and Judy shows, and bringing the art form into the 21st century, this classic remains alive, vital, and hysterical to both children and adults today.
Don’t forget your stuffed animal!
The 13th Annual Stuffed Animal Sleepover will also help launch the summer reading program on July 6th. What would your stuffed animal do if it spent the night at the library? Find out by bringing one of your stuffed animals to the Library anytime between Wednesday, June 29 and Wednesday, July 6. When the Library closes for the day on July 6, the stuffed animals will spend the night (not the people). We’ll create a video of how your stuffed animal spent the night in the library. Find the RFPL Youth Department’s YouTube channel online to see videos from previous years. Don’t forget to pick up your stuffed animal on July 7th!
