LEWISTON — Looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend? Great family fun is happening at The Public Theatre on Sunday, May 20,  at 2 p.m. when the Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers perform their award-winning show, “Everybody Loves Pirates.”

Eight-year-old Lucy and her goofy pal Little Chucky are searching for buried treasure, but a gang of bumbling pirates keeps getting in the way. The kids get some help from their new ocean-dwelling friends, including enthusiastic superhero Lobster Boy, his reluctant sidekick Crabby, and an overgrown sea monkey.

“Everybody Loves Pirates” features 15 hand-crafted mouth-and-rod puppets, and an 8-foot paper-mache pirate ship.

Almost an hour in length, the show is perfect for children ages 4 and up.

Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers is a puppetry troupe based in Bar Harbor comprising three siblings. Founded in 2000, Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers have received several Citations of Excellence from UNIMA-USA, the highest national award for puppetry.

Tickets for “Everybody Loves Pirates” are $5 for anyone 4-18, and $10 for adults. For tickets call 782-3200 or visit www.thepublictheatre.org
