Full Spring Schedule:
Saturday, March 2 @ 11am – The Perils of Mr. Punch follows the troubles and travails of puppetry’s favorite loudmouth, Mr. Punch. Nothing ever goes right – his dog looks suspiciously like a skunk, his baba doesn’t behave, and crocodiles appear around every corner. The skillfully operated hand puppets are chock full of surprises and tricks, as is the elaborate stage.
Friday, March 8 @ 8 pm –Yael Rasooley’s Paper Cut will be presented in honor of International Women’s Day. The all new special puppet show has toured world-wide and is for adults with a wine reception afterwards. The story starts as a lonely secretary remains in the office after everyone else has gone home. From her little corner, using photos from old film magazines, she escapes into a work of daydreams. There she is a glamorous movie star from the 1940s and finds her ideal love at last. But as the story unravels, as imagination and reality collide, her romantic tale becomes a Hitchcock nightmare.
Saturday, March 9 @ 11 am – Fox Fables is a combination of several Aesop’s Fables. The story is about a fox who loses his precious tail and with it his identity.
Saturday, March 16 @ 11 am – The Fairy Tailors is about the Fairy Tailor who is hard at work in her enchanted shop where dressing racks and laundry baskets are known to have a mind of their own. Watch as she transforms everyday garments into extraordinary characters, and shares stories of bravery, from Little Red Riding Hood (ie), to The Emperor’s New Clothes.
Saturday, March 23 @ 11 am – To celebrate World Puppetry Day, Monster Circus will be presented by CactusHead Puppets, which is a circus like no other. Monster’s Caretaker guides the audience through the world of monsters, and maybe even lend the monsters a hand. Join Goat on a Boat and CactusHead Puppets for a free puppet making workshop after the performance to celebrate World Puppetry Day.
Saturday, March 30 @ 11 am – The Chicken Show features Henrietta, the singing chicken who longs to be a star on Broadway but the Mean Ol’ Farmer is going to put her in a stew if she doesn’t produce an egg by morning.
