Puppet show at community center
Placeholder Image

Friendship and understanding are the central elements of “The Reluctant Dragon” puppet show playing at the Sautee Nacoochee Community Association’s Center Theater.

This 40-minute tale centers around a princess and a dragon who meet inside the palace walls. When seen as a threat by the king, a renowned dragon slayer is instructed to fight the dragon.

Loosely based on the book by Kenneth Grahame, All Hands Production’s version of “The Reluctant Dragon” utilizes moving-mouth hand puppets and rod puppets.

The show will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 29, at the center at 283 Ga. 255 N in Sautee Nacoochee. Tickets are $5 per person.

A Simple Paper Puppets Workshop will precede the show at 12:30 p.m. in the art studio. Kids will learn to make a simple paper puppet using easy clean up materials and how to manipulate them. They will create short puppet shows using prerecorded music or improvise a story.

Cost is $5 for a child with an adult or $5 per person.
