Free Admission ~ Meet the cast after the show ~ Door Prize
These are some of the words librarians and teachers around Alaska have used to describe the world famous Stevens Puppets shows during previous visits. The Stevens crew is once again touring Alaska this summer, and this time Delta Junction is finally on the list! Mark your calendar for Monday, June 10 at 7:00 at the Delta Community Center.
The Stevens Puppets are celebrating their 75th year of producing unforgettable and one of a kind marionette productions for children of all ages. The puppets are touring every corner of Alaska this summer courtesy of the Alaska State Library, The Rasmuson Foundation and the Alaska State Council on the Arts. The Delta Junction show is sponsored in part by the Delta Community Library and Fort Greely MWR.
The Stevens Puppets bring classic children’s literature and fairy tales to life with exquisite marionette costumes, professional staging, and a big dose of humor. On Monday evening, you can expect a visit from that sneaky rascal “Rumplestiltskin” at the Delta Community Center. This fast paced, action filled, rhyming rendition of the classic tale, follows the Miller as he weaves a web of lies to convince the King that his daughter can spin straw into gold. Enter the outrageously outspoken and never happy villain, Rumplestiltskin, whose preposterous demands create even more mayhem in the land of ‘Stiltskin. Top it off with a one of a kind marionette that flies to pieces right before your eyes, and add the Stevens Puppets touch of humor and you’re sure to enjoy an evening full of fun and laughter – a perfect outing for the whole family.
Admission is free and there will be a puppet and marionette demonstration after the performance. You’ll be able to meet professional puppeteer Dan Stevens and his crew, get autographs and ask questions.
The Stevens Puppets travel grant is supported with Library Services and Technology Act funding provided by the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Alaska State Library.
