Join Red Yarn & the Critters at Portland Children’s Museum every Third Friday of the school year to sing, dance & experience the joy of community! Red Yarn weaves folksongs and puppetry into high-energy, interactive shows for family audiences, celebrating the multicultural musical heritage of the USA. As Red leads audiences through the landscapes of American folklore (depicted on beautiful quilted backdrops), he introduces his Critter friends along the way. These handmade animal puppets provide comic relief, calm and tender moments, and valuable social-emotional lessons.
Thanks to Portland Children’s Museum for hosting this monthly show in their beautiful theater space! PCM’s mission is to develop innovative problem-solvers through playful learning experiences that strengthen relationships between children and their world. They envision a world where everyone retains and values the innate curiosity, creativity, and empathy of childhood.
