Red Yarn Theater will perform the puppet show Deep Woods twice at the mall’s center court — at noon and at 3:30 p.m. — with fun Super Librarian-led activities for the whole family between shows. Both performances are free with no registration required. Stop by your library before you go and pick up a 20% off coupon for mall food vendors the day of the show.

About the Show

Join award-winning family performer Red Yarn on an engaging adventure through the thickets of American folk music! As Red fixes up an old log cabin in the Deep Woods for his growing family to live in, he learns how forest animals build their homes and raise their young.

Red Yarn & the Critters team up to create a better future for all of their children, human and animal alike. Audiences will sing, dance, stomp and clap along with this interactive puppet show geared to ages 3-8 years.
