POOKA IN THE WOODS is a wonderful pre-holiday event for children and adults. The Larcom Theatre is transformed into a magical forest where dancers turn into swans, aerial creatures become old women, and the Pooka (part human - part animal spirit) leads everyone in a celebration of the harvest. Janet Taisey Craft is director and choreographer. Performers include Jenny Carlson, Jennifer Beauchamp, Amanda Belanger, Tabitha Rodger, and thirteen dancers from Ipswich Moving Company’s Youth Dance Ensemble. Live Celtic music performed by Carol McIntyre and Adrienne Howard. The audience is invited to an informal question and answer session with the Company immediately following each performance.
