Alamance Arts and Mebane Recreation and Parks Department will present Twain's Twisted Tales by the Madcap Puppets on July 31 for the second performance in the Children's Summer Performance Series. Performances are at 10am and 1:30pm at the Mebane Arts and Community Center. Tickets are $4 a person. The performances are recommended for children ages 5-12.
Clara's ordinary day takes an unexpected twist when Mark Twain's most beloved characters escape from her book! Putting them back where they belong is going to take help from Mark Twain himself. Madcap is proud to introduce the life and stories of one of America's greatest literary figures and humorists with giant puppets and audience participation. The stories are: The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, Legend of Sagenfeld, and selections from The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, Madcap Puppets are nationally recognized for engaging and original children's theatre productions, as well as in-school educational programs that include performances, workshops and residencies. Children's learning experiences are enriched with the performances based on world literature and cultures, thanks to partnerships with schools and libraries.
The Children's Summer Series concludes with the Bright Touring Theatre on August 14. Tickets may be purchased at the Mebane Arts and Community Center or Solgarden in Mebane and Alamance Arts in Graham. For more information contact Alamance Arts at 336-226-4495.
