Goldilocks opens the Arlington series. . . and the bears' house

The porridge is too hot, so the bears go for a walk. Plucky Goldilocks walks right into their house, forgetting her manners altogether.

Please join Maggie Whalen of Magpie Puppets as she opens a lovely and lively new version of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." She'll perform it as a "tabletop" show, so that she is on-stage with her hand-made puppets. Maggie's website tells more: http://magpiepuppets.com/

The show will be on Saturday, December 10th at 2 pm, the first in the Arlington Center for the Arts series this winter. Tickets are $5, and I can hold a limited number if you e-mail galapagospuppets@gmail.com before Friday, December 9th. Please come for the show and stay for coffee and puppet-play afterwards. Parking onsite. Directions: http://acarts.org/directions.php

Please come welcome the Year of the Rabbit at Arlington Center for the Arts on Saturday, February 12th. I will perform "Monkey Wreaks Havoc in Heaven", an episode of the Chinese epic Journey to the West. The magical monkey flies to the Heavens and takes a job in the Jade Emperor's peach garden. But when the monkey is snubbed by other gods and goddesses, he sneaks into a banquet hall and eats the preparation for the New Year's celebration. And that's just the beginning of the trouble.

The show starts at 2 pm at the ACA theater, 41 Foster Street, in Arlington. (directions:http://acarts.org/directions.php). Tickets are $5. Please come for the show and stay for coffee and puppet play afterwards.

We can save up to 20 tickets in advance. If you would like to have tickets saved for you, please e-mail galapagospuppets@gmail.com before Friday, February 11th. We'll save the tickets until 2:45 on the day of the show.
