WEEKEND PICK: FREE Charlie & Lola Puppet Show
Charlie and Lola, the quirky and comedic sibling stars of the hit Playhouse Disney series for preschoolers will be the stars of 3 free shows this Saturday, July 28 at 10 a.m., noon, and 2 p.m. at the Macy's wing at the Northshore Mall in Peabody. Presented by BBC Worldwide, produced by Tiger Aspect Productions, and based on the books by award-winning children's author, Lauren Child, Charlie and Lola is a highly-visual, laugh-out-loud puppet show presentation based on the Charlie and Lola TV episode and book I will not ever NEVER eat a Tomato. The show is presented in the artful and captivating Bunraku style (puppeteers in plain view). This production is part of a national 10-city tour. The Peabody stop is the only one in Massachusetts. Charlie and Lola is one of the only shows for kids devoted to portraying the important world of sibling interaction and influence. Every exuberant episode is a charming, quirky and funny exploration of the close bond between 7-year-old Charlie and his livewire 4-year-old sister, Lola.
