Fiddlehead Art and Science Center
Seventy students, ages 4-16, make up the cast of Doctor Dolittle using a variety of types and sizes of 22 puppets. The Fiddlehead Art and Science Center is 10 years old and the performance is being held at Gray-New Gloucester High School. The show is directed by Tammy Fisher and the puppet creator is Alex Adams, a young man who started his own company (a one man show) called Paper Bull Puppets. The musical director is Kevin Smith and the show will have a complete pit. The center is located in Gray, about half of the students are from Gray-New Gloucester. Other cast members are from the towns of Pownal, Cumberland, N Yarmouth, Portland, Naples, Poland, Lewiston, Casco, Auburn, Windham, and Sabattus. The show has taken thousands of hours to create the performance.
