  Wednesday, Thursday and Friday Sergei Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf" is the most exciting way  to introduce  
   December 7, 8 and 9, 2011 children to classical music and puppetry. This world-famous musical tale has   
    been performed often, but very rarely using the unique Czech black theatre   
    technique. The complex but stunning style of this presentation allows complete  
   Showtimes - 9 and 10:30 AM freedom of movement for the almost-life-size puppets who interact on stage  
  with a real-life narrator to create a feel of a big screen animated cartoon.

    still available for the date of please everyone. Marching penguins, dancing Russian bears, Snowmen,  
    your choice at (601) 977-9840 Pulchinellas, and many more, create a whirlwind of colors to bring laughter and
