PUPPET SHOW SERIES: Our next show is scheduled for Saturday March 18 at 3 pm with "The Brigham City Co-op and Early Pioneer Stories" This is part of a series of historical shows being resurrected in honor of the Brigham City Sesquicentennial.
(historical and hysterical!!) The shows will be performed by sculpted latex head hand puppets made and dressed to help tell about various historical eras. The stories were gleaned from records at the Brigham City Museum, and with a touch of humor and insight, are designed to enlighten all ages. Additional stories schedule for third Saturdays in March and April include “The Brigham City Co-op” and “World War II Experiences”. Held at the Fine Arts Center, these 25 minute shows will be followed up with related family activities. Recommended admission donation of $2.00 per person. A small craft is included in Museum activities

*PS: We missed in the introduction that you would want to purchase not only a 28-32inch wood dowel for the scrim curtain, but also two lengths of 6 foot long PVC pipe and possibly two T fittings and a 28 inch brace piece between the pipes. (So you need to know how to cut PVC pipe as well as sew.) see more at Puppet Stage and video link.
