The Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre Company will present three showings of “Bremen Town Musicians” on Thursday, October 28, in the Salsbury Room at the MacNider Art Museum at 10 am, 1 pm, and 6 pm. All shows will be free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-served. Doors will open for seating 15 minutes before each show. This free show is made possible by a grant from the Bertha Stebens Charitable Foundation. Masks are optional.

Eulenspiegel Puppets presents a new adaptation of the Bremen Town Musicians, a beloved Grimm’s fairy tale! In this version, Till Eulenspiegel’s donkey retires and makes common cause with a bluesy hound, a rockin’ rooster, and a jazzy cat. They outsmart two “granny scammers” caught taking advantage of their former owners, settle in an abandoned cottage, and take their musical act to the streets of Bremen Town! Performed with live music – guitar, piano, and singing – by musician Laura Kittrell and both puppeteers! 

Groups of 10 or more (schools, home school groups, daycare, etc.) should register in advance for the 10 am & 1 pm shows by calling 641-421-3666 or emailing jmbohl@masoncity.net. Schools are eligible for a bus subsidy while funds last.
