The final 'Summer Nights' program of 2017 at SFCC will feature the StoneLion Puppet Theatre.

The show, The Wind in the Willows, performed by the StoneLion Puppet Theatre Company, will begin at 6:00 in the evening on Thursday, August 24 in the Stauffacher Theatre.

A press release from State Fair Community College says, 'The Wind in the Willows is a fast-paced musical based on the classic tale by Kenneth Grahame. Using bunraku puppets and interactive fun, the theater troupe offers an all-age production concerning the adventures of Mr. Toad and his daring obsession with driving automobiles. Mr. Toad is accompanied by his friends Mole, Rat and Badger, who try to keep him out of trouble, with only limited success.'

StoneLion Puppet Theatre has been performing since 1992. The group is headquartered in Kansas City and tours throughout the Midwest.

The shows are described as 'fresh, original and educational.'

The puppet-company has received backing from the Smithsonian Institute, the Missouri Arts Council, and Kansas City Young Audiences.

Admission to the 'Summer Nights' program is free.
