Peak Island puppets to perform this weekend

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine -- On Sunday, March 2, from 12:00-2:00 PM, puppets will perform their original production, The Rudder Family Holiday Planner: A Celebration of the Jewish Holidays at Bet Ha'am. There will also be a pizza party!  

The Portland-based Peaks Island Puppets in Holidays bring families closer together, and also ruffle a few feathers! The story is brought to life by the innovative puppetry of David Handwerker and Stephanie Eliot who play Elijah the Prophet and his sidekick, Queen Vashti. Time traveling from their biblical roots they catch up with the Rudder family as they celebrate the Jewish holidays. 

Tickets are available at the door. $10 for adults and $5 for kids/seniors.

When I first met Francine Schrock, she had just finished creating a beautiful mural for a memory care facility in Portland. Her grandmother died of Alzheimer's, so the project had special meaning and she went on to paint more murals in other facilities. You can read about the first mural in my health and wellness blog Catching Health.
