RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Vermont’s PuppeTree will present a production of Leo Lionni’s classic children’s book “Swimmy” at the Rutherford Public Library on Friday.
This event blends shadow puppets, animation and projections performed by the PuppeTree’s founder Ann Legunn. A visual and musical treat, “Swimmy” features a classical music score that takes the audience into the undersea world and introduces children to the work of Debussy.
A companion piece, “Swimer,” will also be presented. “Swimmer,” with an original music score, tells the story of a young girl fighting to save her beloved New England river from the threat of pollution.
Children ages 4 and up with their families are invited to attend this puppet show. No registration is required. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Rutherford.
For additional information, call the library at (201) 939-8600.
The program starts at 4 p.m.
The library is at 150 Park Ave., Rutherford.
