PETRA AND THE WOLF
From Lionheart Youth Theatre
Staging and puppetry by Glass Half Full Theatre and live original score by Mother Falcon
A new work for young audiences inspired from the Prokofiev classic Peter and the Wolf, with captivating large-scale puppetry by Glass Half Full Theatre and a new instrumental score written and performed live by Mother Falcon, a band NPR describes as “the little orchestra that can seemingly do the impossible.”
This original work introduces the mischievous but fearless Petra, the granddaughter of the fabled Peter. When a wolf threatens her home and animal friends, her adventures become a showcase of bravery and compassion. Students will walk away from this stunning piece of visual and musical storytelling with a new sense of empathy for the animals that share our earth.
Family Workshop at 1 pm: Explore the original story of Peter and the Wolf through puppet and music making! Each participant will make a puppet to take home.
Presented by Lionheart Youth Theatre with Glass Half Full Theatre and Mother Falcon
Family Fun programming is made possible with support from WHEATLEY PLAZA.
