Il Teatro Calamari brings puppets, masks and a unique theater experience to Literacy Park
I find it hard to believe that this Wednesday's Literacy Park program is the last for our Every Hero Has a Story 2015 summer reading program. It's been a great summer with over 2,000 people attending the weekly shows. Fortunately, there's one more show to enjoy, this Wednesday's Il Teatro Calamari with their special brand of puppetry, masks and physical theater. The show starts at 1:00 p.m.
Il Teatro Calamari was founded in 1995 as an international touring company by Emmy award winning puppeteer Tim Giugni. The company pursues theatrical excellence on the stage with productions that weave puppetry, mask and physical theater into whimsical and innovative theater experiences for the entire family.
Il Teatro Calamari’s programs are funded by a Ready to Read grant from the Oregon State Library. Their lodging is provided the D Sands Condominium Hotel in Lincoln City. Additional support comes from our long time summer reading supporters; Ross and Janis Neigebauer, Jeanette Hofer and Umpqua Bank.
Young readers reading for an Every Hero Has a Story t-shirt have until August 31st to reach their goal.
