Great Small Works from New York City, Facto Teatro from Mexico City and Barbara Steinitz from Berlin, are teaming up to present three stories for family audiences. This program is part of a tour throughout the New England states.
The three tales performed are: Don Carlos Con Alas (Don Carlos With Wings), based on a story by Eraclio Zepeda; Lyzer the Miser, based on an Isaac Bashevis Singer story; and Duraznos Azules (Blue Peaches), based on a Mexican folk tale.
Both Great Small Works and Facto Teatro have curated International Toy Theater Festivals in New York City and Mexico City. Among other awards, Great Small Works has received a 2005 Puppeteers of America Jim Henson Award for Innovation in the Field of Puppetry, a 1997 Village Voice OBIE Award grant, and a 1997 UNIMA Citation for excellence in puppetry. No registration is required. This event is co-sponsored by La Boca Mexican Restaurant and Cantina, Main Street, Middletown.
Tickets are on a sliding scale $5-$15, pay what you can.
