By THE CAMPBELL THEATER
We have a lot of exciting events coming up in June at the Martinez Campbell Theater.
Starting the month off, on Friday, June 1, we have a Singer-Songwriter Showcase featuring Fooling Marie, Anchors Up, Eli Moody, Uncle Jimi, Roezi Rebel & John Todd. This ages 21+ show is only $5 and starts at 7 p.m.
Saturday, June 2, we have Puppets of Praise Theater presenting DooWop Wed Widing Hood.
Don’t miss this sharply told, crisply paced 60 minute one-act musical ride through Ozlandia. This adaptation of a 50s era Little Red Riding Hood, Doo Wop style, with appearances by some of your favorite Wizard of Oz Characters will appeal to both children and adults alike.
Join the Puppets of Praise life sized black-light puppet characters as they add their own crazy twist to the original musical production. Come dressed in your favorite 50s outfit or just drop in as you are and enjoy the show by clapping and laughing along. Truly fun for all ages.
