The Puppetopia 2024 lineup:
The Adventures of Curious Ganz
Curious School of Puppetry
February 27-March 2
A fictitious story based on the true life of 16th-century copper smelter Joachim Ganz with a little leap to Ada Lovelace, Galileo, Al-Buzanji, Brunelleschi… A response to the closing of borders and narrowing of minds this show is a celebration of the new, the strange, the brave, and the curious!
February 28-March 3
A story of a fisherman, who, together with his boat and his fishing net, establishes an invaluable connection with his profession; an artisan who inhabits those places that have become strange and alien to us.
Marooned! A Space Comedy
Alex and Olmsted
An innovative new puppet show, featuring music from the Voyager Golden Record that takes place in the outer reaches of space.
Eat Drink Tell Your Friends
A story about a girl who is navigating a challenging home life, a carousel horse-maker stuck in time and a physics lecturer (based loosely on Richard Feynman) who serves as a bridge between their two worlds.
Show Notes: A Puppetopia package is available for $110 and includes admission into all four shows.
