The Catskill Puppet Theatre will return to the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute For Kids and Families series at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28, in the Museum of Art auditorium.
Full sets, puppets and Native American flute and drum will bring to life the tale of Iroquois hero Hiawatha. In the play he is a curious young boy who disobeys his grandmother to seek a vision, alone, in the forest. There he finds a sacred cave and enters a magical world full of talking animals and fantastic spirits. He meets a wise Mohawk, The Peacemaker, who teaches him a lesson. At last, with the help of his friends Bear and Turtle, Hiawatha discovers the pathway he must follow to become a great man.
Since 1979, John Potocnik and Carol Mandigo, co-founders of the Catskill Puppet Theater, have been touring internationally, enchanting young and old with their musical productions.
