Puppet Show at Newport Library


Dragon Theater Puppets perform at Newport Public Library's Literacy Park 1:00 pm Wednesday, August 7th. This is the last Dig Into Reading show for the summer but young readers have until August 31st to finish their reading contracts and receive their T-shirt. All children and families are invited to attend this free program. 

“Jason Ropp and his company of puppets are a staple of our summer reading shows,” says Rebecca Cohen of Newport Library. “This summer they are once again performing an original show written specifically for libraries, I Dig Dinosaurs. Jason is a very talented performer who writes the scripts, makes all his puppets and performs all the roles. Something all the librarians appreciate about him is that he takes time after his shows to talk with the children and show them how things work behind the scenes. If folks have young visitors in town, this is a great show to bring them to.”
