A darkly poetic satire of Phantom of the Opera as seen through the iron bars of a carnival freak-show cage. With puppets more twisted than a melodrama mustache (and twice as greasy), Erik points and laughs at the real freak show- us.
Based on the classic English fairytale, this fresh retelling of the Swedish Cottage original production takes Jack on an enchanting adventure up a magical beanstalk. In this starry new world, Jack encounters the notorious Giant, Milford, whose thieving ways have brought misfortune upon Jack and his mother. Determined to make life better for his family, Jack, with help from friends old and new, risks his life to take back what the Giant stole.
For the delight of audiences aged five to 105, Chechoslovak-American Marionette Theater will perform its newest work, The Magic Garden, or, The Princess Who Grew Antlers, an ensemble creation that is cheerfully concocted from Czech fairy tales in which antlers appear. Featuring four performers, marionettes of various sizes and assorted antique moose and deer antlers.
After a long string of shows that were more for adults (alright, kids were never turned away), Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre has resolved to put on a new family-friendly show (but don't tune out, parents. You won't be disappointed). The play is being developed in the company's own Magic Garden on a hill overlooking Cold Spring in the Hudson Valley.
Following the performance, Brooklyn Center will host its eighth annual National Grid Earth Day Celebration on the plaza outside Whitman Theatre. Featuring interactive family activities, educational materials, street performers, and giveaways, this community festival will highlight the need for conserving energy, recycling, and heightening awareness of the environmental global issues that we face today. National Grid Earth Day Celebration is a free event, with no tickets or reservations required.
