The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Puppets are not just for children!
Shadow Puppet Extravaganza
On the weekend of November 19th and 20th, Firefly Shadow Theater, in collaboration with the Princeton Arts Society, will bring the exciting dramatic art of shadow puppetry to the area. Saturday, November 19th from 3-5pm, a hands-on shadow puppet workshop, ideal for elementary-age children and families, will take place at the First Congregational Church (14 Mountain Rd., Princeton). This workshop combines performance, puppet-making, Q & A, and a glimpse behind the scenes.
Sunday, November 20th, from 5-6:30 pm at the Princeton Arts Society room in the Princeton Center Building (18 Boylston Ave, Princeton), Firefly will perform the classic tale The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which adults will especially enjoy. The performance will be followed by Q & A, a brief history of this ancient art, and a demonstration of traditional puppets from China, India, Indonesia and Turkey.
