Bob Brown Puppets at LCNV's Reading: A Family Affair

The Literacy Council of Northern Virginia will be hosting its 6th Annual Reading: A Family Affair,a FREE event that brings books to life through performance art! RAFA will take place Saturday, March 24, 2012, from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM; it will be held at the James Lee Community Center.

On LITERACY LIVE, LCNV will spotlight storytellers, musicians, dancers, and puppeteers who will be performing at Reading: A Family Affair! Today, we’re spotlighting Bob Brown Puppets.

Bob Brown Puppets consists of dynamic duo, Bob and Judy Brown, who have spearheaded  a major children’s theater company for the past fifty years. These master puppeteers offer the finest in children’s education and entertainment, performing to over 300,000 children a year. Through “marionette magic,” Bob Brown Puppets brings together art, music and story-telling to the delight of children (and grown-ups).

Meet the Second-Hand Stars at RAFA

Come to LCNV’s Reading: A Family Affair and watch Bob Brown Puppets perform with their SECOND-HAND STARS, a vast treasure of stuffed toys transformed into puppets. Bob states: “All these wonderful toys have been simply tossed away. I’m just giving them a chance to be a star – second chance to shine.” Meet the Second-Hand Stars: Snirdley on his souped-up scooter; juggling Marley; Elizabeth the explosive elephant; Gertrude the graceful Goonie-Bird; tap dancing Bingo and Bob; and many more. Bob Brown Puppets and their Second-Hand Stars will give an unforgettable show, one you do not want to miss!
