“Petra and the Wolf,” a new work inspired from the classic “Peter and the Wolf,” is coming to the Edmonds Center for the Arts March 23-24.

It’s presented as an ECA Education Matinee for school groups and homeschool families 10 a.m. and noon Friday, March 23, and as a public matinee 11 a.m. Saturday, March 24.

“Petra and the Wolf” features large-scale puppetry by Glass Half Full Theatre, and a new instrumental score written and performed live by Mother Falcon, a band NPR describes as "the little orchestra that can seemingly do the impossible."

The story introduces the mischievous but fearless Petra, the granddaughter of the fabled Peter. When a wolf threatens Petra’s home and animal friends, her adventures become a showcase of bravery and compassion.

“Petra and the Wolf” unites Lionheart Youth Theatre with the music of Universal recording artist Mother Falcon and Glass Half Full Theatre. Based in Austin, Texas, Lionheart Youth Theatre is dedicated to producing and presenting work for young audiences that celebrates the fearlessness and imagination of the next generation.

Glass Half Full Theatre creates new works of theater using “the precise physical language of both humans and puppets to address the momentous issues that humankind confronts across the globe.”

Tickets to education matinees are $8 per student, with one complimentary teacher or chaperone for every 10 student tickets sold. Tickets to Saturday matinee are $10 per person.

Purchase tickets online at www.ec4arts.org, by phone at 425-275-9595, or in person at 410 Fourth Ave. N.
