National touring company Madcap Puppets to perform at 2014 Art-A-Licious

Downtown Adrian’s Art-A-Licious festival has announced that Madcap Puppets, a national touring company based in Cincinnati, will appear at this year’s festival.

The troupe will present “Aladdin & Friends” at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 20, on the main floor of the Adrian Public Library. The show is sponsored by the Adrian arbor of the Gleaner Life Insurance Society.

Cathy Chesher, youth services librarian at the Adrian library, said she’s seen Madcap Puppets perform before, and “they’re always very popular and very entertaining.” This will be the puppets’ first visit to Art-A-Licious.

Madcap Puppets was founded in 1981 and tours across the country with an extensive repertoire of comic-absurd and original fairytale performances.

“Aladdin and Friends” runs about 45 minutes and is mainly intended for kids ages 5 to 12.

The eighth annual Art-A-Licious festival will take place Friday and Saturday, Sept. 19 and 20, on Main and Maumee streets in downtown Adrian. For more information, go to artalicious.org.
