More about… “The Legend of The Banana Kid" by Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers

Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday | February 22, 23 & 24 | 10:30AM & 1PM

About the show: Chucky, a boy with a dream, goes West. Along the way, he meets a mysterious cowboy who takes him to a remote western town that is being harassed by a seedy group of outlaws. Pretending to be a local hero – “The Banana Kid” – Chucky leads an effort to outsmart the thugs and bring justice back to the town.

Performed with hand puppets. This show is recommended for ages 5 & up.

About Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers: Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers is a puppetry troupe based in Bar Harbor, Maine, comprised of three siblings: Erik, Brian, and Robin Torbeck. They’ve been performing mostly “down east” at festivals, schools, libraries, and “some of the finest petting zoos on the East Coast.” They’re also an audience favorite at the Puppet Showplace Theatre!

The Torbecks write their own shows and make all of their puppets. They have brought other wonderful shows to the Puppet Showplace Theatre stage in years past, including The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow and Everybody Loves Pirates.
