The Washington Montessori School in New Preston will present a marionette puppet show called “Sir George and the Dragon” on Saturday, March 2 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. The morning will include a post-performance demonstration period to give the audience some insight into what happens behind the scenes.
Performed by John McDonough’s Pumpernickel Puppets, “Sir George and the Dragon” tells the story of an adventurous princess who journeys to Mystery Mountain to visit the Great Green Dragon. Along the way you’ll meet Zelda the babysitter, a silly bat, Sir George and his clumsy dog, and of course the lovable dragon. Will Sir George slay the dragon? Not to worry, everything ends happily in this fun show. Presented with large colorful hand puppets and live voices and sound effects. The show is appropriate for children ages 3 and up.
Pumpernickel Puppets have captivated audiences of all ages with humorous and colorful adaptations of classic folk and fairy tales for over forty years. John McDonough presents over 250 puppet shows a year at schools, libraries, and private parties throughout the New England area. Pumpernickel Puppets have appeared at The Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, The Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA, and the prestigious International Festival of Puppetry sponsored by the Jim Henson Foundation in New York.
