Reading is Fun – Puppet Show

  • Date(s): Wednesday, March 11th 2015
  • Time: 6:30 p.m.
  • Location: Niobrara County Library

The Friends of the Library are pleased to present the puppet show “The Quest of the Junkyard Dragon” on Wednesday, March 11 @ 6:30 p.m., featuring puppeteer Markie Scholz. Markie creates an event that looks and feels life-size with puppets ranging from six inches to six feet in size. The “Quest for the Junkyard Dragon” is a delight for young and old.

Dragons, trolls, witches, screaming meemies and others hassle Sharn, our heroine. Each helps or hinders her journey to find the Junkyard Dragon. Then, and only then, can she regain her place in the kingdom. During this fifty minute journey, Sharn must build friendships and escape the evil forces who try to keep her from Skavang, the dragon who shuns humans but collects their trash. The script is written with a great deal of dry humor to entertain adults as well as children. “I love fantasy.” says Scholz, “In it, good and evil come clothed in all sorts of strange and wonderful shapes and sizes.”
