Puppeteer to retell classic tale at library

The Forest Grove Library, 2114 Pacific Ave., will continue its Summer Reading Performer series with a show from Teatro Calamari at the end of June.

Founded in 1995 as an international touring company by Emmy-award-winning puppeteer Tim Giugni II, Teatro Calamari pursues theatrical excellence on the stage with productions that weave puppetry, mask and physical theater into whimsical and innovative theatre experiences for the entire family to enjoy.

Giugni draws inspiration from workshops, reading children’s stories, comic books, particle physics, drawing, sculpting, and playing at the dinner table. The company also has workshops on their working style for both the general public and businesses.

Giugni and his puppet pal Plumking will retell the classic story of the Three Little Pigs with suggestions given by the audience. The fun starts at 11 a.m. Thursday, June 30, in the Rogers Room at the library.
