RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Vermont's PuppeTree performs a show for children at the Rutherford Library on Friday, March 18.
A collection of Leo Lionni's classic children's book, "Swimmy," and companion piece, "Swimmer," will be performed by the PuppeTree's founder Ann Legunn. This event blends shadow puppets, animation and projections.
A visual and musical treat, Swimmy features a classical music score that takes people into the undersea world and introduces children to the work of Debussy.
"Swimmer," with an original music score, tells the story of a young girl fighting to her New England river from the threat of pollution.
Children age four and up with their families are invited to attend this 4 p.m. puppet show. No registration is required. The program is made possible by the Friends of the Library of Rutherford.
The Rutherford Public Library is located at 150 Park Ave.
