The Nutcracker, A Puppet Presentation, Austin Public Library locations, December 5 - 18

From the Austin Public Library:

The Nutcracker is a classic favorite, a charming tale of holiday adventure that follows a little girl's journey through a fantasy world of fairies, princes, toy soldiers and an army of mice. Enhanced by Tchaikovsky's much-loved score, Literature Live! brings the story to life with puppets.

Clara journeys to the Land of Sweets with her Nutcracker Prince where she meets the Sugar Plum Fairy, dancing candy canes and many other colorful characters. In the end, Clara is left to wonder whether it was all a dream.

The show is free and open to children ages 5 and older. For more information please call 512-974-7302 or visit

Received December 5 from Ellen via the Austin Puppet Society:

Hello, all -- Devo and I have about 8 performances left of The Nutcracker and we would love for you to see what we are doing. It is a 30 minute traditional puppet show with hand puppets on a standing stage.

The puppets are an experiment in Super Sculpy, which is wonderful to work with, but not advised for hand puppets. I have already had to mend a broken head and neck, but they came out of surgery feeling fine.

These are all at Austin Public Library locations and can be searched on the APL website.
We will also be participating in the First Night parade as the Bibliofiles with book carts!
