Now that summer has arrived who wants to spend the nights inside? Instead families can enjoy the warm weather and a show by coming to Flanders first outdoor "Firefly Theater" production being held on Friday evening, July 12th. Guests will be able to sit beneath the stars in the natural amphitheatre setting of the field next to the Flanders' South Farm House while watching the Native American story of the "Star Creation" as retold in the words of area storyteller , Samantha M. Dunbar. The presentation will incorporate storytelling, acting, dance, puppets and music and is appropriate for all ages. A cast of engaging characters, including Great Bear, Crafty Coyote and other woodland creatures is certain to enchant children as they learn a life lesson that all earth creatures, whether big or small, have great value. A full night of fun is planned. Besides the show families will be visiting the Flanders Country Kitchen for a treat and kids are invited to join in making a firefly craft to bring home. Show time is 7:30 PM. In event of bad weather there is a rain date of Saturday, July 13th.
