On Tuesday, March 8th, the Arrow Lakes Arts Council is presenting the Maritime Marionettes in “The Bremen Town Musicians” at the Bonnington Arts Centre.
This concert is our family show and starts at 7 p.m. This is the fifth concert in this season’s Concert Series.
Maritime Marionettes, founded by partners and puppeteers Heather and Darryl Taylor, have been entertaining families in Canada and abroad since 1986.
The Taylors bring traditional and original stories to life with exquisitely made and skillfully manipulated wooden marionettes.
A common misconception in North America is that all puppetry is geared for children.
Darryl and Heather close the gap that has kept children and adults segregated, as they have accented classic music with a visual show intended to charm all ages.
They will be performing “The Bremen Town Musicians,” a story about friendship and adventure. An aging donkey follows his dream to become a musician. He befriends a dog, a cat, and a rooster, who like him, are no longer needed as farm animals. Together they form a comical quartet and a bond that will last the rest of their lives.
Come and join us for a fun filled evening with Heather and Darryl Taylor as they perform for us in a very traditional art form at the Bonnington Arts Centre. Tickets are available at the Broadway Deli until 2 p.m. Tuesday, then at the door. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Ticket prices for this concert are: Adults – $20, Seniors – $15 and Students – $10.
There is a family rate of $40.
