"Everybody Loves Pirates!" offers up a fun-filled weekend.
BRATTLEBORO- A weekend full of fun and puppets with Everybody Loves Pirates! by Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers begins Friday, March 16, at 11 am, with a large-scale school show at the Latchis Theater. A puppet-building workshop will be held at the Putney General Store on Friday, March 16, from 4 to 5 pm. The fun ends on Saturday, March 17, from 11 am to 2 pm, with two public performances at Sandglass Theater featuring 15 hand-crafted mouth and rod puppets and an 8-foot paper-maché pirate ship.

Eight-year-old Lucy and her goofy pal Little Chucky are searching for buried treasure, but a gang of bumbling pirates keeps getting in the way! The kids get some help from their new ocean-dwelling friends, including enthusiastic superhero Lobster Boy, his reluctant sidekick Crabby, and an overgrown sea monkey.

Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers is a puppetry troupe based in Bar Harbor, and comprises three siblings- brothers Erik and Brian Torbeck and sister Robin (Torbeck) Erlandsen. Founded in 2000, Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers has performed at festivals, schools, libraries, and theaters in the United States and Canada. They write and create all the shows they perform and have received three Citations of Excellence from UNIMA-USA, the highest national award in puppetry.

The cost for the workshop is $10. Participants will be guided through a step-by-step process of how to make a puppet character of their very own using socks, cardboard, hot glue guns, fur, feathers, and other assorted materials. For ages 7 and up. To register visit
