Stevens Puppets present AladdinJune 24, 2017
Join us for this Super Saturday magical performance of Aladdin presented by Stevens Puppets. From the pages of The Arabian Nights comes the timeless story of Aladdin! This Chinese folktale comes alive with the help of Martin Stevens’ hand-crafted marionettes. A true “rags to riches” story, follow Aladdin from the streets to the royal palace and beyond! Infused with music, mystery and magic, Aladdin is guaranteed to please all audiences! Stevens Puppets was founded in 1933 by the Peabody Award winning Martin Stevens, preeminent American puppeteer and founder of the Puppeteers of America. With his wife, Margi, Mr. Stevens created ground-breaking touring marionette shows which are featured in books, in museums, and on tour. Mr. Stevens’ marionettes and stage design have influenced generations of puppeteers in America and abroad, often cited as artistic benchmarks and industry standards. Dan and Zan Raynor, present owners, have been with Stevens Puppets for over 20 years. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Aladdin when the group visits the Fort Smith Public Library.
