Amazing Free Family Show at Gretna Music

No Words. No Cost. All Fun.

When Alex and Olmsted’s MILO THE MAGNIFICENT® takes the stage at Gretna Music on Saturday, June 15th, prepare to be blown away. But not by the dialogue.

Billed as “a wordless comedy” MILO THE MAGNIFICENT® employs innovative puppetry and music to tell the story of aspiring magician Milo whose tricks rarely go as planned.

This visually captivating show is the brainchild of puppeteers and filmmakers Alex Vernon and Sarah Olmsted Thomas. Their company, Alex and Olmsted, is an internationally acclaimed puppet theater based in Baltimore, Maryland and the recipients of three prestigious Jim Henson Foundation grants.

Thanks to the generosity of Sid Hostetter and Evelyn Koppel, Gretna Music is able to offer this mesmerizing, innovative performance at no cost to attendees. Doors open at 6:00 pm and seating will be made on a first come-first served basis. No registration or tickets are required.

Plan to arrive prior to the 7:00 pm showtime and visit the creative space sponsored by Manheim’s Horst Arts where kids are invited to make their very own puppets!

This is a fantastic opportunity to gather the entire family – from preschoolers to grandparents and everyone in between – to enjoy an evening of wholesome, no-cost entertainment in beautiful Mount Gretna.
