Summer Library Touring Show:
Alice & Jimmy's Epic Rock Dream
because Libraries Rock!
Each year we are proud to present a performance to enhance the theme of the Collaborative Summer Library Program.
For summer 2018, join the Groovy Guru as he tells the tale of friends Alice and Jimmy: one a misunderstood dreamer with big ideas and the other a singer-songwriter in search of a sense of style and in need of some confidence. They'll need lots of help from the audience to guide them along their epic rock adventure! See a clip from "Alice & Jimmy" and learn more about all of our puppet shows here.
Check out our calendar to find the closest production of "Alice & Jimmy" or contact us to book a show!
