The next Benshi show is coming up! More info here.
Hi there. We had a busy couple of months and appreciate all of the support you guys have shown us. From The Curio Show to Grown-up Storytime to our first ever Gala we have been blown away by the amount of people that choose to come to our stuff. We love you! We must also thank all of the venues that have hosted us. Having a roof over our head really helps! There’s nothing on the super soon horizon for us so here is a picture of a dog and goat hugging.
Hello friends! Thank you to everyone that made it our latest puppet production, The Curio Show. You guys blew us away. But there is no time for breaks or vacations! We are on again tonight for Grown-up Storytime, our 63rd edition. The show starts at 9pm at Rudyard’s and costs $5. We recommend that you get there a little early to grab a seat and a drink and some TOTS. They have several free lots for parking and there is plenty of space on the streets in the surrounding neighborhood.
Here is the lineup! WE ARE EXCITED!!
Host – Ty Mahany

The Curio Show has been going so well, and we have our audience members to thank for making such a great turnout. In fact, we are adding an extra showing on Friday to make sure we can fit everyone in! Seating is limited at our new venue (3603 Main Street, in the building just south of Ensemble Theater) so make sure you get there a few minutes early to snag a spot. There is plenty of street parking in the area and some pay lots on the west side of Main.
The remaining dates for the show are:
Friday January 17th, 8pm and 10pm
Here is what the front door looks like!
The Curio Show, a shadow puppet production, opens tomorrow (Saturday January 4th) at Rudyard’s.
The show was inspired by co-artistic director Lindsay Burleson’s recent trip to New York where she explored the history and current trend of curiosity cabinets. Cabinets of Curiosities, popularized in the 16th century, were actually rooms that resembled museums. Later on in the 18th century, the concept was contained, so to speak, and dubbed curio cabinets. The Curio Show features 8 items, exploring their history and how they came to be in such a cabinet.
The show is completely hand made by Lindsay herself, with help from puppet comrades Larkin Elliott, Peter Zama, and Emily Hynds. Local musician Mlee Marie will provide a live score, with keyboards and a FLUTE!
The dates and venues are below! All shows are pay-what-you-want and tickets can be purchased at the door.
