Traveling Lantern Theatre Company presents The Caterpillar Hunter
The Waldport, Newport and Lincoln City public libraries feature an original play from the Traveling Lantern Theatre Company for their Wednesday, July 3 summer reading programs. All children and families are invited to attend one of these free programs.
The national touring company presents their play, The Caterpillar Hunter, at Waldport Public Library (10 a.m.), Newport Public Library (1 p.m.), and Driftwood Public Library in Lincoln City (6:30 p.m.). Due to the July 4 holiday, the Toledo and Siletz will be closed so will not have programs this week.
The shows are sponsored in part by Ready to Read grants from the Oregon State Library and the Lincoln County Library District.
Based on the beloved character of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, the Caterpillar Hunter shrinks himself and sets off to explore the terrain, pursuing elusive bugs and strange herbage in the wild recesses of a common North American vegetable garden.
Traveling Lantern has been educating and entertaining children nationwide for the past 25 years. Their mission is to bring great stories to children, to draw them into an active theater experience, to excite their minds and to tickle their imaginations. The company has been doing just that for the New York Public Library, Yosemite National Park, schools and libraries around the country.
