Puppet series returns to SCC
On Sunday, Dec. 9, the center brings the fabled folktale “Aladdin.”
The Sonoma Community Center announced the return of its “Puppet Playhouse” series, a collection of family-friendly puppet shows offered in partnership with award-winning performing groups. On Sunday, Dec. 9, at 1 p.m. the center brings the fabled folktale “Aladdin.”
In this popular legend from “The 1001 Arabian Nights,” young Aladdin thwarts an evil sorcerer, discovers a magical lamp, befriends a powerful genie and saves a princess.
Utilizing dramatic staging, the Fratello Marionnettes will present this magical tale as it has never been seen before.
The Puppet Playhouse series will conclude with a creative twist on the familiar tale of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” Magical Moonshine Theater will restage this fairytale with a golden mischievous little dog at its center. “Puppylocks and the Three Bears” incorporates live music, singing and traditional Bohemian style marionettes on a tabletop stage. It will be presented Sunday, Jan. 13, at 1 p.m.
Tickets are available at the Sonoma Valley Box Office with a 10 percent discount available for center and Sonoma Valley Mothers Club Members. Tickets are $10. Shows are recommended for those ages 4 and up.
