MOSES LAKE — Classic tales of Native American folklore will come to the stage at the Moses Lake Civic Center auditorium Saturday. Performances of “Coyote Tales” are scheduled for noon and 2 p.m. Saturday at the auditorium, 401 South Balsam St.

The performances by the Tears of Joy Theatre company are sponsored by the Moses Lake Museum & Art Center and Columbia Basin Allied Arts. “Coyote Tales” is the Free Family Saturday event for September.

Tickets will be available at the auditorium on the day of the show. Tickets are first come, first served, and museum officials recommended arriving an hour before the show to ensure a seat.

The company uses puppets, masks and costumes inspired by Northwest Coast tribal art to tell two stories about coyotes and their tricks. Tales of tricksters are common around the world, and in North America the coyote often plays the role of the mischievous prankster. The company will tell two stories in each performance, which include Native American phrases and songs.

The performance is the season kickoff for Columbia Basin Allied Arts, and the first “Green Turtle” performance of 2018-19. Green Turtle is the CBAA children’s program.

Free Family Saturday is a monthly program for children sponsored by the museum. It’s paid for through sponsorships, the museum’s membership program and the annual “Feed the Mammoth” fundraiser each November.
