Saturday Morning at the National: Peter and the Wolf


Peter lives in a small meadow surrounded by a dark forest. He enjoys the day observing his friend the song bird, his sneaky cat, and the duck who swims in a nearby pond. Grandfather warns Peter to beware of the Wolf who roams in the woods--but Peter has no fear of wolves. Until one fateful day when he and the Wolf come face to face. Come see Rainbow Puppets' version of this classic in which Peter and his friends, including the duck and the Wolf, survive the day's adventure. 

There is one performance at 10am. FREE tickets may be reserved starting the Friday one week prior to the show. Once reserved tickets are gone, a limited amount of walk-up tickets will be available on-site on the day of the show. Arrive 30 minutes prior to the performance time to take a place in the "stand-by line".
