WALDOBORO — The Waldo Theatre is presenting a family-friendly benefit concert at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 8 at the Broad Bay Congregational Church in downtown Waldoboro.
The concert will celebrate winter and the holiday season through a reading of Margaret Wise Brown’s beloved children’s book, “The Little Fir Tree.” The reading will be accompanied by projections of Barbara Cooney’s award-winning illustrations and live music performed by violinists Josie and Sophie Davis, violist Colin Wheatley, and cellist Ju-Young Lee. Local actress Devin Fletcher will narrate the story.
A reception with cookies and hot drinks provided by Laura Cabot Catering will follow the performance.
Admission is by donation and children are admitted for free. Proceeds from the event will benefit the renovation and restoration of the historic Waldo Theatre, one of Waldoboro’s most treasured gathering places.
