PUPPET STAGE 60TH ANNIVERSARY
Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.
On May 17th, Central Library celebrated 60 years of the Jemne Puppet Stage. Several staff who had performed in the stage over the years returned, reminisced, and enjoyed two nursery rhyme puppet shows and a special appearance by The Forty Performing Bananas. Presenters included retired Children's Room supervisor Shirley Brady who talked about Della McGregor and the puppet stage and Steve and Carolyn Lonning who performed for many years as the Star Puppet Theater.
