Program Description

Event Details

In celebration of Children’s Book Week, we will be offering special performances for children and their families at each of our branches!

The Pinconning Branch is hosting Alex Thomas & Friends for an event all about shadow puppets! Learn the art of designing and crafting your own shadow puppets and be guided through the process of cutting, shaping, and assembling the puppets. Participants will learn the techniques of shadow play and manipulation and will explore the effects of light and shadow, discovering how to create different moods and atmospheres using their puppets.

Through experimentation and practice, participants will develop the skills to bring their puppets to life and create dynamic and visually stunning shadow performances.

Children between the ages of 3-7 must have an accompanying adult to the program.


Please register each person individually, including adults.

Registration is required.  Please register in person, by phone, or online.
