What is better than watching a puppet show?
How about playing with a puppet you created?
Rodman Public Library will give children up to the age of 12 the opportunity to do both as it gets the summer started with MellyPop! Productions on Monday, June 5 and Tuesday, June 6.
On June 5, MellyPop! will present Dr. Dolittle at 6 p.m. in the Rodman auditorium. Children will have fun hanging out with Dottie, Dr. Dolittle's bumbling new assistant, as she shares stories with all of the magical, talking animals during the interactive show that combines puppets with music and comedy and is inspired by Hugh Lofting's book The Story of Doctor Dolittle and Rudyard Kipling's short story Rikki Tikki Tavi.
Registration is required to attend the puppet show. [REGISTER HERE]
On June 6, MellyPop! Productions will return to RPL to conduct puppet making workshops. MellyPop! will offer two separate sessions, one at 5:45 p.m. and another at 6:45 p.m. where children will learn how to build a puppet.
A separate registration is required for the puppet making workshops. Children may register for one session.
Both MellyPop! Productions events are free and supported by Friends of Rodman Public Library.
