Celebrate! with Tanglewood Marionettes' the Fairy Circus

John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum
Boston, MA

Tuesday, December 26, 2017 - 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. EST


Come enjoy turn-of-the-century-style trick puppetry featuring over twenty hand-crafted marionettes that dance, play instruments, juggle, contort, transform, and fly through the air—all to the best-loved music of famous composers.

The Celebrate! series, appropriate for family audiences and children ages 5 and up, highlights America’s rich cultural diversity through the arts. This program is tied directly to President and Mrs. Kennedy's concern for and support of the arts and culture in a democratic society. Thanks to generous support from the Highland Street Foundation, all performances are free and take place in the Stephen E. Smith Center at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum (Columbia Point, Boston, MA 02125).
