Puppet Works presents Dusty Locks and the Three Bears on June 23rd and 24th with four FREE performances at the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts. Based on Susan Lowell's award winning book the play is a lively Western retelling of Goldilocks. She hadn't had a bath for a month of Sundays, so everybody called her Dusty Locks. But Trouble was her middle name.
The FREE performances with a puppet make-n-take will be at 10:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. on Saturday, June 24th and Sunday, June 25th. Seating and supplies are limited and will be on a first come first serve basis.
Way out West live three bears who like to keep their cabin neat and tidy. But one day while they're out for a walk, a dirty little girl named Dusty Locks barges in. When the bears come home to find their nice, neat house looking like it's been hit by a whirlwind, they get riled-and Dusty Locks runs home so fast the dust doesn't settle for a week.
Author Susan Lowell spends part of her time on a small ranch in the desert and the rest of her time in Tucson, Arizona. She is the author of several bestselling books for children, including Little Red Cowboy Hat and The Three Little Javelinas.
