The Welcome Marionettes are returning to Point Roberts with a new production.
In 2013 the group performed “The Wizard of Oz” at the Point Roberts Library and will return there to present “Popeye’s Picnic” on August 8 at 3 p.m.
Welcome Marionettes is a group of traditional puppeteers “dedicated to reintroducing classical marionette theater.” They have performed frequently in Whatcom County, especially within the library system.
Founder Laura Scott Caroll is a second-generation puppeteer who has been building marionettes for over 15 years, working to revive the family tradition of puppetry after fire destroyed her parents’ popular marionette theater in 1949.
For more information on the free performance, contact the Point Roberts Library at 945-6545.
