The Iowa City Public Library’s annual Popo’s Puppet Festival will be held from noon to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 22, in Meeting Room A.
This year’s festival features three acts. Come for one performance or stay for all three!
First, join Parasol Puppets at noon for their performance of The Teeny Tiny Woman and Other Halloween Tales. This audience participation version of the old English folk tale features a teeny tiny woman who takes a teeny tiny walk and finds a teeny tiny bone. Suddenly, her teeny tiny house echoes with the cry of “Give me my bone!”
Popo’s Halloween Show takes the stage at 2:30 p.m. for a performance that will have the audience laughing so hard, it’s scary!
Finally, at 3:30 p.m., enjoy a shadow puppet show. Sea Beast Puppetry’s hero gets lost in the shadow. Will she ever be saved?
Stick around after the performances for crafts, or put on a show of your own with the Library’s collection of puppets.
