Neo Benshi #1 is Tonight!

Platahontas opens this Friday!

Our latest shadow puppet play, Platahontas, opens this Friday at Beta Theater! Platahontas uses shadow puppetry to chronicle the life of one of these semi aquatic mammals after it is kidnapped and sold into scientific slavery (or what they refer to as “research”). Platahontas doesn’t remain under his captors’ microscope for long; he is soon sold to a circus to live out his days in a sideshow tent. What happens next, you ask?? Come to...
