TRURO – The Maritime Marionettes will perform

at the St. Andrew’s United Church here next


Topics : Oak Island

Truro’s Darryll Taylor, who operates the Maritime Marionettes with his partner, Heather, will present ‘Molly and the Oak

Island Treasure’ at the church (corner of Duke and King streets) on June 7 at 10 a.m., and 2 p.m. on June 8.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the Clay Café, the church office between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. Monday to

Friday, or at the door.

Taylor wrote the story about Molly and the Oak Island treasure and combines local folklore with fantasy in this musical


The two skilled artists, who are dressed in black and moving about seamlessly, have the ability to bring the story of

Molly to life by manipulating their carefully designed string puppets.

The audience will also see the transformation to working shadow figures on a warmly lit cotton screen. This brings an

additional enchanting dimension of puppetry to enhance the story.

The 45-minute story includes eight marionettes and a dozen shadow puppets.

The story is about Molly and Pixie, her little fairy friend, who set out on a marvelous adventure in search of buried

treasure. Along the way Molly meets friends who help her in completing her wondrous journey.

This show features the music of the Barra MacNeils and has a rich maritime theme.
