Incubator: New Works by Local Artists
Puppet Showplace supports the development of world premiere puppetry productions by local artists. Incubator puppeteers become part of a supportive artistic community and receive rehearsal space, a materials stipend, and fiscal sponsorship for outside funding. They also participate in peer reviews and periodic works-in-progress showings. Incubator projects culminate in January with extended runs for youth and family audiences during the “New Year! New Shows!” series.
Incubator applications are accepted on a rolling basis. If you are interested in developing a production through Incubator, please send a statement of interest, work sample, and initial production proposal to artistic director Roxanna Myhrum at email@example.com.
NEW PRODUCTION January 2017:
I Spy Butterfly!
by Faye Dupras
January 21 - February 5 2017
Trudy loves all things that creep and crawl and flitter and flutter. When a caterpillar she has befriended suddenly turns into a chrysalis, our heroine must face her fears in order to witness it change into a beautiful butterfly. Interactive staging and live music make this a fun ecological romp through nature!
