Puppet Theatre "Nalah And The Pink Tiger" at Paynesville Feb. 9, 2013
The Paynesville branch of Great River Regional Library will feature a live puppet show on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 1:00 p.m. "Nalah and the Pink Tiger" is based on a picture book of the same title by artist, author and puppeteer, Anne Sawyer-Aitch. The story is about a girl named Nalah who lives so intensely in her imagination that grown-ups around her view her as a troublemaker. Things come to a head when - in addition to all the exotic animals that Nalah has “placed” in the house – a pink tiger “follows” her home from the zoo and creates havoc. The story celebrates the joyful explosiveness of a child’s imagination. It's a 35-minute show, followed by a question and answer session. The program is designed for children ages preschool through fifth grade, but all ages are welcome. Preregistration is recommended, as attendance is limited to 60. This program is funded with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
