Tomie dePaola’s classic 1976 children’s story, Strega Nona, will be brought to life on Sunday, August 7 at Winnekenni Castle, located at 347 Kenoza Road in Haverhill. The University of New Hampshire’s traveling troupe, Little Red Wagon, will take the stage at 2 p.m. for this wonderful, free performance.
Strega Nona tells the story of Strega Nona, the kind-hearted witch, Big Anthony, her well-meaning but careless assistant, and how her magic pasta pot caused a whole mess of trouble when Big Anthony borrowed it. This magical performance features song numbers, engaging puppets and the fantastic storytelling that made dePaolo’s book a well-loved favorite.
Little Red Wagon is part of the University of New Hampshire’s Department of Theatre and Dance and is led by Director Carol Jo Fisher. The performance will run approximately one hour and refreshments will be available. Following Strega Nona, children will be able to take part in balloon art with Doctor Goose!
