Summer campers to perform ‘The Loneliest Whale’

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Campers from the Southwest Harbor Public Library’s Summer Story Camp Ocean Week and the Barn Arts Collective will perform “The Loneliest Whale” at the library on Thursday, July 13, at 6:30 p.m.

“The Loneliest Whale” is loosely based on a real life whale that always travels alone. Scientists believe the whale, which no one has actually seen, sings at a high frequency (52 hertz) and therefore cannot be heard by other whales.

As part of the library’s summer literacy program, campers worked with the Barn Arts Collective to create and perform this brand new show, which features original music and puppets. The show will include a special whale puppet created by artist Mike Duffy for the performance.

All ages are invited. Call the Southwest Harbor Public Library at 244-7065.
