and self reflection.

in the series will take place on Sunday, Feb. 20featuring storyteller and
childrens musician Sam Driscoll who will be presenting The Orphan
Boy and the Circus King about a boy who is raised by a circus of misfits.
The story is full animated and shown on a big screen.
As the story unfolds,
the animated characters talk to the audience and Sean, then with a little
magic they come down out the screen as puppets.
The third instalment in the series brings the always popular Rag and Bone
Puppet Theatre to the Orleans Theatre stage on April 15.
Zoom at Sea
is about a little cat named Zoom who finds a dusty diary one day with the
words To Zoom from Uncle Roy inscribed in it. On the last page
there is a map and the message The sea and how to get there. Members
of the audience are then carried along on Zooms journey.
