Guest Artist Series – Columbia Marionette Theatre
March 20 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Performances at 10:30am and 12:30pm. Parents and families invited.
Columbia Marionette Theatre will visit the students to perform the classic fairy tale “Rumplestiltskin”. This is a fast-paced comedic take on the original Brothers Grimm story in which Gwendolyn, the daughter of a poor miller, weaves straw into gold with the help of the troll, Rumplestiltskin, for the greedy king. However, Gwendolyn soon discovers that his help comes with a very high price. Following the show, the performers will have a short talk-back with the students to discuss the mechanics of the puppets and how science is integrated into this art. This will be part of MAC’s Arts Integration Week in March.
