A Neurotic Pea
    The Goat on a Boat Puppet Theatre in Sag Harbor will put a new twist on a couple of old fairy tales on Saturday, with “The Princess, the Frog, and the Pea.” Combining three well-loved stories, Liz Joyce’s 30-minute production brings to life a princess, an unenchanted frog, and a neurotic pea.

    Tickets to the event cost $20, and there will be food, beverages, and music by Vivian and the Merrymakers.
