Arts Council of Tamworth will present a puppet show, “Sir George and the Dragon” with music teacher and puppeteer Diane Kordas on Saturday, January 31 at 2:00 p.m. at the Cook Memorial Library in Tamworth, NH.
“Sir George and the Dragon” is a fun and exciting medieval tale, and Kordas’s trademark humor and use of audience participation update this classic. The knight Sir George rescues the Princess Petunia from a very hungry baby dragon. No swords here, but Sir George subdues the dragon just the same.
Diane Kordas has been performing music for children and families since 1992, and puppet shows for over a decade. As a registered nurse and later as a mom she started using music and puppets to entertain and educate her patients, friends and family. She learned how to design and sew her own dolls and puppets with instruction from her mother, and enjoys making her own puppet characters for her shows. Today, her classic and original stories with puppets, music, humor and audience participation are enjoyed by children and families at libraries, schools, outdoor events, parties, daycares and preschools throughout New England. Kordas is on the NH State Council on the Arts Touring Artists roster, and a member of the New England Foundation for the Arts. Her second CD, Dinosaur Stomp, is the recipient of two Children’s Music Web Awards.
