This marionette mystery fairy tale, Counting out the Trees, will be performed by Yorick’s Marionette Theater in Narragansett.
Pinocchio, Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel and other famous fairy tale characters come together to find out the mystery of disappearing trees. Fairy Queen summons an emergency meeting under the full moon. A wonderful cast of marionettes entertains children aged 5 to 14. The 3:30 workshop is led by creators Agnes Novak and Dusan Petran to help kids make their own Marionettes: a girl, boy, bird, or other animals.
