Peppercorn Theatre at Kaleideum: Live at RiverRun with Charlie Chaplin’s The Rink

Synopsis

As part of RiverRun’s lineup of FREE events for Family Day, Peppercorn Theatre at Kaleideum will present the short stage play The Navigators before the screening of Charlie Chaplin’s The Rink.

The Navigators: A Peppercorn Theatre at Kaleideum Mini-Play for ages 3 and up. Duration: 20 min.

A navigator is responsible for knowing the location of a ship or aircraft at all times. A navigator should NEVER be lost. After a gusty storm blows them astray, two navigators must use their knowledge of maps, geography, and weather to right their course! Two live performers tell the story of this high-flying adventure through puppetry and movement!

The Rink (1916): Runtime: 25 min.

Created by United Artists founder Charlie Chaplin, this short film features Chaplin as a bumbling waiter who, after already causing chaos at his restaurant, proceeds to tear up the local roller rink with his questionable skating ability!
