Event Description

The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents Worlds of Puppets’ Peter and the Wolf on Sunday, March 17, 2019 at 2:00pm & 4:00pm at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. Peter and the Wolf is the final show in the 2018/19 SPOTLIGHT Kids Series. The National Theatre of Iceland’s Master Puppeteer and founder and Artistic Director of the Icelandic Center for Puppetry Arts brings hand-carved wooden puppets to life, complemented by Prokofiev’s timeless score Peter and the Wolf. (Please note that the music is not live for this performance.) Peter lives at his grandfather’s home in a forest clearing. One day after leaving the garden gate open, Peter’s grandfather scolds him for playing outside in the meadow when a wolf could come out of the forest at any moment. But Peter is not afraid of wolves, and plans to prove it to his grandfather! Based in Reykjavik, Iceland, Bernd Ogrodnik is world renowned for his puppetry skills. His production company Worlds of Puppets offers acclaimed touring productions and special creations of puppets, marionettes and more for the stage and the screen. He’s won such prestigious awards as the “Prix Michael Meschke International” in 2012 for fostering and pioneering the Art of Puppetry, the 2011 “Griman” (Icelandic Oscar) for best children’s performance, and many more. His work as designer and lead puppeteer in the movie “Strings”, which was screened around the world and earned several Film Festival nominations and prizes, earned Ogrodnik a well-deserved reputation as the best of the best in puppetry.
