Dollywood's Penguin Players Bring One Cool Friend to the Library

Dollywood’s Penguin Players return to Buncombe County Public Libraries in May!  This year's new musical production, Tony Buzzeo's One Cool Friend, brings us the delightful antics that result when young Elliot takes a penguin home from the aquarium.

One Cool Friend is a lively 20-minute production filled with sing-along songs, including music written especially for the Penguin Players by Dolly Parton.

This program is free and best suited to children that are preschool age and up. The schedule of performances is:
