Presented by Lee Bryan, That Puppet Guy!
Atlanta puppeteer Lee Bryan (“That Puppet Guy!”) will present “Circus Fanta-Sea” 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, May 4 at the Cummings Library in Palm City and 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 5 at the Hoke Library in Jensen Beach. These 45-minute performances are free and open to the public and suggested for ages Pre-K through 5th grade and families. Each program concludes with a behind- the-scenes puppet demonstration.
Join Captain Tater Tot, the once great pirate captain and ringmaster, who loses all his circus cargo in a mighty storm at sea. This aquatic adventure features puppets made from recycled plastic bottles. Circus acts include a tap dancing octopus, a unicycist seahorse, and a tightrope walking starfish. But did Seymore the Shark come to join the circus… or just eat it?
Watch and see—you’ll get hooked!
