Family Program: String City: Nashville’s Tradition of Music and Puppetry

Saturday, July 08, 2017 - 10:00am

Marionettes, rod puppetry, shadow animation, and an ever-changing set tell the story of country music as it relates to Nashville’s transformation into Music City.

Experience this exciting true story through nearly one hundred puppets, ranging from the Staple Singers to Johnny Cash to Taylor Swift.

String City was created by Wishing Chair Productions, the resident puppet theater company at Nashville Public Library, in collaboration with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.​

String City is presented in the Museum's Ford Theater.
