Marlborough – Saturday, July 7, at 11 a.m., the Mystic Paper Beasts are coming to the stage at Union Common, 91 Main St., Marlborough. Bring blankets or chairs to sit on while being entertained in the park. The Saturday Morning Discovery Series, offering free entertainment for family audiences, will move to its rain location at the Marlborough Senior Center, 250 Main St., if the weather is inclement.
The Mystic Paper Beasts are witty and whimsical masked performers who will entertain the family audiences performing myths, original and traditional, using dance and mime, in masks hand made by Dan Potter, with writing and direction by Marya Ursin. They take their inspiration from Native American, Greek, Hindu, European, South American, Asian, African sources, and also create their own stories.
The series is presented by the Arts Alliance and the City of Marlborough with support from the Ezra M. Cutting Trust, Bank of America, N.A., Trustee, Avidia Bank, Ken's Foods, Allied Waste Services of Tyngsboro, Woodard and Curran, Marlborough Cultural Council, Marlborough Savings Bank and St. Mary's Credit Union.
