The award-winning National Marionette Theatre will present “Peter and The Wolf” for the general public Friday, Oct. 4, at 7 p.m. in the Walsh Common of Lincolnville Central School, Route 235. The production is family-friendly and suitable for all ages.

Based on the original Russian folktale, the National Marionette Theatre’s version of the story features the beautiful music from Prokofiev’s orchestral score combined with stunning scenery and handcrafted marionettes. Set in turn-of-the-century Russia, the show tells the story of how Peter, along with his animal friends, captures the wolf.

The production is sponsored by Waldo County General Hospital. There is no admission fee, although donations will be accepted at the door. The show also will be presented three times in the Clifford Performing Arts Center of Mt. View School in Thorndike, as well as a school-day performance for children at LCS. The Mt. View performances are co-sponsored by Waldo County General Hospital, Searsport Counseling Associates and the Clifford Performing Arts Center.
