Cashore Marionettes

March 23-24, 2018
Elizabeth Eriksen Byron Theatre

Cashore Marionettes redefine the art of puppetry with their moving and humorous performance. The Cashore Marionettes have astounded both children and adults in Europe, the Far East, and across North America, and the Byron Theatre at the Newman Center is the perfect intimate venue to experience the marvel of this show.

The program, Simple Gifts, is a series of touching portrayals and poignant scenes from everyday life set to stunning music by such composers as Vivaldi, Strauss, Beethoven and Copland. Through a combination of virtuoso manipulation, beautiful music, theatrical illusion, and artistic insight, the original vignettes presented in Simple Gifts provide an entertaining and sensitive vision of what it is to be human. The performance explores a range of emotions with characters and actions that are amazingly convincing.

One DU and student tickets are available for this performance.
