BUY TICKETS This year’s adult puppet slam uses the theme of Dreams and Nightmares as a take-off point for our performers to play in this wonderful cabaret style form. You will see everything from shadow puppet dancing to miniature and giant puppets with live music from a four piece band led by Gregg Moore and the Crocodile Tears. Puppet contributors for this year include Black Cat Shadows, Dupre’s Creepy Puppets, AC/DC Puppets, Bay Area puppeteer Mary Nagler, Quack and Wabbit and of course the Indestructible Professor Willikers. It will definitely be a raucous night of wild antics with a wide range of puppet styles and moods from comic to dark and beautiful. The show is recommended for adult audiences with sets by Lush Newton and James Hildebrant.
The performances are sponsored by Playhouse Arts and the Puppet Slam Network which is a national network of short form puppetry performance.
