Communique: "Peter & the Wolf" With Shadow Puppets & Masks On Wednesday, 7/27

This Communique is a little different than normal. Host Gina Gambony isn't doing the interviewing; instead, WHQR's Program Director Bob Workmon interviews her about a show she's directing and performing in next week: Peter and the Wolf with puppets-shadow puppets to be exact. The show is onstage one time only at Kenan Auditorium next week on Wednesday, July 27 at 10:30 am. This performance is part of a new program through UNCW Office of Arts called Seahawk FAM that has featured family shows on Wednesday mornings through July.

Local actor Steve Vernon is narrating the story and playing Grandfather, Laura Smith is the head puppeteer, Linda Wall and Aurora Shimshak are puppeteers, and Gina Gambony plays Peter. 

"Peter and the Wolf" shadow puppet/mask show. Wednesday, July 27 at Kenan Auditorium, 10:30 am.

Listen to the interview above to hear Gambony's philosophy about puppets and what part of the story she's changing. Tickets for the show are available at the Kenan Box Office at the door, by telephone at 910-962-3500, or online.   All tickets are $5.
