Puppet Crimes, original hand puppet pieces for adults


Date & Time: 
Aug 12 2017 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Kasper and Gretel by Jana Zeller

k&gwoosh

This raucous hand puppet piece features traditional German hand
puppet heroes Kasper and Gretel, as they struggle with the duties of a
married couple inside an old shack. The action turns comical, tragic and
grotesque as the two juggle the baby, their chores and making money,
dream of a better future and hide a dangerous secret from each other.
Based in a tradition that first appeared in the fairgrounds in Europe in
the 16 hundreds, these stock characters survive to this day and
continue to comment on their surrounding society.

 

El Beto by Kalob Martinez

EL BETO is a one man, bilingual, hand
puppet version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth and is set in the world of the
Mexican drug cartel. While the US engages in the war on drugs another
war is fought by the cartels in order to gain control of the US/Mexico
border. From 2006 to 2010 there were seven cartels fighting over control
of the border. 35,000 drug related homicides occurred during that span
of time. Details about cartel leaders like El Chapo and El Mas Loco
sound so far fetched as if they came from a movie.

These shows are appropriate for ages fourteen and up. Ticket prices are
$16 for general admission and $14 for students and seniors.  Please
reserve your tickets at (802) 387 – 4051 or at info@sandglasstheater.org
