Belle Vernon Public Library will kick off summer with a performance at the Community Bank Park of “The Very Grumpy Monkey.” Slated for Tuesday, June 22, at 11 a.m., the event will feature the Books Come Alive troop of Greensburg’s Stage Right! theatre school.

“We’re excited to offer this program as our feature event for children’s summer reading,” noted the library’s director, Elina Filander. “We’ll also use the park on Wednesday mornings through July for library programs, so getting kids out and together to see a book-inspired play seemed like a natural fit.”

The play tells the story of a monkey made out of sorts by quarantining and being apart from his friends. When everyone asks why he’s so grumpy, he only gets grumpier.

Stage Right’s Books Come Alive presentations are performed at libraries and schools in the region withprofessional theatre artists, colorful costumes, props and storytelling techniques designed spark a love of books.

“It’s going be an outdoor show so it has to be weather permitting,” Filander explained. “Children will be sitting on the ground in the park so having a towel or cushion would be a great idea.”

The performance is free and open to the public. Community Bank Park is located at 725 Graham St. in North Belle Vernon near the Dairy Queen. The library will also have a door prize for one lucky winner to receive a basket of monkey themed books and toys. For more info, please call the library at 724-929-6642.
