Great Arizona Puppet Theater will perform “Peter Rabbit” for the final performance of Cortez Public Library’s summer Family Entertainment Series.
The performance will begin at 2 p.m. Friday, July 26, at the library, 202 N. Park St.
In the show, puppet Farmer McGregor’s story is told to music with no dialogue. The music was composed by one of GAPT’s founders, Nancy Smith.
To create the show, Smith read Beatrix Potter’s story and decided which scenes she wanted to keep in the puppet show. Then, she composed the music to tell the story. Smith worked with her team of puppeteers to create choreography for the puppets. At the end of the process, the music and the puppet movement comes together to tell the whole story of Peter Rabbit.
This free event is sponsored by Golden Dreams, under Onward! a Legacy Foundation.
