Petersburg’s Wright Auditorium is the first stop in Alaska for a theater company called the Wonderheads, the latest offering by the Petersburg Arts Council. The group has been touring together as the Wonderheads for seven years, offering enchanting tales for kids and adults using large masks and body motion. Their latest show is called “The Middle of Everywhere.”
The Wonderheads are also offering a free workshop Friday, March 18 with a limited number of spaces. Joe Viechnicki spoke with the company’s Kate Braidwood and Andrew Phoenix about their show.
Today’s free workshop is geared toward middle school age and older and is this afternoon at the Wright Auditorium at 1 p.m. They have room for up to 25 participants. The Wonderheads perform at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 19. Tickets are $20 general admission and $10 for students and seniors.
The troupe also has shows this spring in Juneau, Skagway, Cordova, Valdez and Homer.
