Little Chucky heads to the Wild West to outwit outlaws in this cowboy adventure. With a fistful of bananas, Chucky rides into town on his trusty goat for a showdown with Big Bad Bart and his gang of bandits.

“The Legend of the Banana Kid” features 20 hand-crafted glove, mouth and rod puppets, and a slew of flying and twirling Styrofoam bananas. Almost an hour in length, the show is perfect for children age 4 and up.

Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers is a puppetry troupe based in Bar Harbor and is comprised of three siblings. Founded in 2000, Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers have received three citations of excellence from UNIMA-USA, the highest national award for puppetry.
