It’s Monday again and that means we had the pleasure of enjoying another free performance at our local library. I just can’t say enough about these programs and how much everyone who attends enjoys them. They are sponsored by the Wood-Trust Bell Foundation located in Wausau, WI.
Tonight’s performance was a truly hilarious, entertaining, and educational play performed by actors from the Traveling Lantern Theatre Company. The play was about a caterpillar hunter who was shrunk down to the size of a bug and discovered just how different things really are when you’re small.
The audience was brought into the story by some creative interactivity and my children’s attention was captivated by all the action and character/costume changes. At the end of the play the actors allowed the kids to ask questions and even showed them some of the tricks used during the performance such as how they made the sound of thunder and what was at the other end of that cow tail.
If you get a chance to attend a performance by the Traveling Lantern Theatre Company in your area don’t pass it up! You might even want to talk to you school and see if they would book them for a performance; your kids will love the performance and I think even the parents would have a great time as well (I know I did!).
