This new show is an extraordinary modern fairy tale epic for all ages. An ancient witch has traded her heart for eternal life with the mysterious Man of Beasts. A wooden boy, cut free by the Scissors of Fate, sets out on a journey to help the witch find what has been lost. Ignored by the busy population of the city, the boy must find friends in strange and forgotten places... Come see what adventures await!
Using giant puppets, masks, stilts, painted flats, junk, and paper-cut shadows, Paperhand tells stories that reflect our humanity (or lack there of) back to us, hoping to inspire people of all ages toward a better world.
Pre-show at 6:20 for all performances.
No one turned away for lack of funds.
This show will also perform in Chapel at the Forest Theatre August 10 - September 9.
Suggested donation: adults $12; kids $8; ages 2 & under free.
