    Mock Turtle Marionettes  presents ShadowStories with Balinese music at the IceHouse

    Join us on Saturday, March 15th at 10 AM at the Charles Brown IceHouse in Bethlehem for ShadowStories, featuring three shadow puppet plays and live music performed by Gamelan Mekar Sari, an ensemble comprised of Valley devotees of Indonesian music. The program will include Mock Turtle’s new shadow play, The Grumpy Gecko, accompanied by Balinese gamelan music played on drums, gongs, cymbals and metalophones.

    Also a part of our shadow puppet program will be two of the theater’s most popular shadow productions, Travels to Tondo, a story from Africa, and the Legend of Sung Low, a Chinese shadow tale.  ShadowStories will be followed by a free demonstration of the gamelan musical instruments and the shadow puppet theater.

    Tickets are $5 for the show and $7.50 for the show and a puppet-making workshop combination.
