Musical Puppet Show To Be Presented at The Library in Moundsville

MOUNDSVILLE — The Moundsville-Marshall County Public Library will host the Pittsburgh Puppet Works at noon on Saturday for a very special performance of “Tales to Tunes.” The event is aimed at young children and is free and open to the public.

This new edition of “Tales to Tunes” is a musical puppet show based on stories written by the talented young authors of the 2018 WQED Writers Contest. The stories are brought to life through songs with puppets adding their own silly jokes along the way.

The Pittsburgh Puppet Works is a professional puppet troupe that entertains children of all ages. Known for creating and performing “professional, hilarious, toe-tappin’, engaging and all-around catchy puppet productions,” the Pittsburgh Puppet Works is family entertainment with “real character.” The laughs and learning go hand-in-hand and the artistry of the puppets is first-rate.

This event also serves as the local launch of the 2019 PBS Kids Writers Contest. Applications to enter the contest, plus handouts to help inspire young authors, will be available. Teachers and parents are invited to use this contest to encourage children to read, share tales and write their own stories. The contest is open to children in grades K through 5 and entries must be postmarked by March 31, 2019.

The “Tales to Tunes” puppet show is an Inquire Within event, with the library receiving support from WQED and Chevron. The Moundsville Library is located at the corner of 5th Street and Tomlinson Avenue.
