"The Yankee Peddler: Stories and Songs from Old New England"
Get into the Halloween and harvest spirit with New England folk music and shadow puppets! Audience members are invited to dress in their Halloween costumes for all performances.
About the show: Ever wanted to sing along with a sea shanty? Or dive deep into a fox's den? Then join us for a whirlwind tour of New England's lesser-known folklore where you'll discover a giant sailor, a fashionable bear, and the world's largest wheel of cheese. Drawing from three hundred years of stories, songs, and local history, this show is a delight for audiences of all ages.
