Simple Gifts (ages 8+)
Friday, April 11, 5:00 p.m.
Saturday, April 12, 2:00 p.m.

Each vignette is simple and yet, you forget the characters are fabrications, stitched together by a supremely gifted puppet-master. From the performance of the grand old violinist Maestro Zelinka to Johnny Lobotomy's heavy metal rock guitar frets, each marionette offers a moment to be treasured.

Life In Motion (ages 12+)
Friday, April 11, 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, April 12, 7:30 p.m.

Rarely has life been imitated with such precision or with such pathos. Joseph Cashore's hand-built marionettes replicate stunning effects, like toes wiggling from the hole in a shoe and a mother holding her squirming newborn. Set to recorded music by Beethoven, Strauss and Copland, each scene is powerful, surprising and one-of-a-kind.
