Through the mist and mythical creatures at Campbellsville High School's Hamilton Auditorium on Tuesday night, the crowd was treated to something a bit unusual, something they might have never seen before - a Bunraku puppet show.

Wood and Strings Theatre brought Bunraku puppets to the stage and performed "Out of the Mist ... a Dragon," a tale of a young man's journey of self-discovery.

The production was the second of this year's Central Kentucky Arts Series' season. And it was enjoyed by many.

After the performance, the puppeteers showed the audience how they operate the puppets and gave them a closer look at several.

The performance was one of only two shows by Wood and Strings Theatre performed in Kentucky this season.

The arts series brings great acts to Campbellsville every year, from plays, musical performances and authors. This event, however, was something many of us may not have seen before.

Our kudos to organizers for bringing us such a new and entertaining event.
