Come see a classic Christmas tale told by MARIONETTES! The Fox Folk Marionette Troupe of Fox Valley Lutheran High School will be presenting the Christmas classic "The Search for the King" at St. Peter on Thursday, December 13 at 1:15 p.m. Young and old alike will enjoy this updated version of "The Other Wiseman" by Henry Van Dyke. This half-hour family-friendly show will feature over 20 colorful, hand-crafted marionettes. Animals and Bible characters will take the stage to tell the story of Artaban, a "wise" man who will remind the audience of the important truth that "wise men (and women) still seek Jesus."
This performance is one of the group's Senior Showcase events. FVL senior Aidan Smithson has been involved with the puppet team over the past several years and will be coming back to perform at St. Peter where he graduated from four years ago. He will be joined by 11 other FVL students. The troupe is director by Dave and Cassie Payne and is an extracurricular club at the high school.
