About the performance:   
All action and  music, this tour de force marionette (string puppet) production is truly a delight for the eyes - and fun for the soul, too.  Not just an array of puppet clowns and acrobats, but a carefully choreographed series of vignettes set to the light-hearted musical suite, especially written for young people, The Comedians by classical composer Dmitri Kabalevsky.

 The puppets are worked in full view of the audience, which gives the performance an extra added dimension.  The cast of puppet performers includes: a stilt walker, strong man, trapeze artist, juggler, elephant, clowns, poodles and more.

About the Puppet Company:  
After three decades and thousands of performances, the staging of each new production; the making of each new puppet, is still an exciting challenge.  Every place of performance - whether it's an elementary school in Danbury, Connecticut, or the Kinski Palace in Prague - is regarded with equal importance, and every audience member, a potential new friend.

   Puppetry is both a visual and a performing art, by which puppeteers can express themselves in the workshop as well as on the stage.  The Robert Rogers Puppet Company does both and has long been known and respected for its beautiful craftsmanship and style of its puppets, the stories they dramatize and the extraordinary way they are "brought to life."
