Greenwich Time - - NEWS -

En­joy the work of the No Strings Mar­i­onette Com­pany as they present a pup­pet show about a young fox who is busy find­ing her way in the wide world. On a stroll in the woods on a spring morn­ing, forester Bar­tos en­coun­ters a fox kit, who is taken home as a gift for his grand­son. Catcher, the fam­ily dog, shows Sharp Ears how to live within the con­straints of hu­man rules. But will a full belly and safe sur­round­ings en­tice the fox to com­pro­mise her wild ways? There will be two per­for­mances at 1 and 2 p.m. Satur­day at the Green­wich His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, 47 Strick­land Road.. Doors open at 12:30. This fam­ily pro­gram will con­sist of a 40-minute mar­i­onette show fol­lowed by a Q & A where chil­dren will have the op­por­tu­nity to touch and ask ques­tions about the mar­i­onettes. In the Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­ter class­room, chil­dren can make their own mar­i­onette.
