The Great Arizona Puppet Theater has announced its show lineup for November 2012. Details below!
"THE LITTLE RED HEN": Who will help the Little Red Hen with all the work it takes to get wheat made into bread? This fun sing-along show shares a valuable message about cooperation.
Preschool - grade 3.
"THE COLLECTOR" (ADULT SHOW): Guest Artists the Animal Cracker Conspiracy. Winner of "Best of Fringe" at the San Francisco Fringe Festival, "The Collector" is a mysterious tale set in an alternate reality about a lowly debt collector who, under the management of a mechanical, tyrannical overseer, undergoes a radical transformation in the process of collecting outstanding debts. As he travels through the urban landscape the boundaries between object and self collide. The story unfolds into a multidimensional mixed-media performance through Orwellian, neo-Victorian lenses. Performed with toy theater, table-top puppets, object theater and stop-motion animation with original film and constructed soundscapes.
Funded in part by The Jim Henson Foundation, The Puffin Foundation and The Sator Arts Foundation. Visit the artists' website at http://www.animalcrackerconspiracy.com/ **Tickets are $15** ***Show at 8pm*** **Ages !6+**
