Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers bring ‘Grinch’ back to town



ELLSWORTH — The Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers present their annual take on everyone’s favorite holiday character, the Grinch, at The Grand on Friday, Dec. 5 at 6 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 6 at 1 p.m. (directly after The Downtown Ellsworth Christmas Parade).

The Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers revisit their twist on the Grinch with typical Frogtown foibles and physical comedy. The puppeteers are a small troupe based in Bar Harbor and are comprised of three siblings: Erik Torbeck, Brian Torbeck and Robin Erlandsen.

Founded in 2000, Frogtown Mountain has performed at fairs, festivals, theaters, parades, schools, libraries and some of the finest petting zoos on the East Coast, as well as at the annual Great Ellsworth Puppet Festival every fall at The Grand. “The Grinch Family Holiday Event,” populated by the group’s hand-made glove, mouth and rod puppets, is sure to please all ages.

Admission for these performances costs $8 for adults and $6 for children 12 and under.
