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.
