On Saturday, May 17th, the Fever River Puppeteers will offer a FREE show incorporating two of the scripts from the youth "Play Writing Contest". Contest selections include a script from Rachel and Abby of Hazel Green. Both students are in 4th grade and their story and title incorporate pirates and mermaids - "Battle in the Sea". The plot lends itself more toward hand puppets than marionettes .
The second script, offered by Ashlyn of Dickeyville, WI, a 5th grader, is titled "Funny Fools" and includes a king whose daughter is kidnapped by the evil "Dingo the Demon".Dingo places the princess over a volcano and the king, along with his jester, must out-smart the demon to rescue the pretty maiden.
The "double feature", one a marionette show and the other a hand-puppet show, will be presented at 11 A.M. and 2 P.M., Saturday, May 17, as part of Hazel Green's "Feast in the Streets" celebration.
