Arm-of-the-Sea Theater will present its annual Esopus Creek Puppet Suite from August 5 to 7 at 7 p.m. at the Tidewater Middle in Saugerties. The out of doors general performance event characteristics stay new music, larger-than-everyday living mask and puppet figures and lower-tech equipment of visible storytelling. This year’s present, Hold that Lamp Trimmed ‘n Burnin’, is a historical drama about the Saugerties Lighthouse and the women’s suffrage movement.
The ensemble cast includes musicians Eli Winograd, Katy Kondrat and Laura Crimmins along with veteran puppeteers Kira deCoudres, Trey Daniels, Dee Dee Maucher, Maclain Maeir and M. J. Smythe. Marlena Marallo has established the visible components highlighted in the manufacturing, and Patrick Wadden directs the motion.
The Tidewater Center is situated at 61 East Bridge Road in the Village of Saugerties. Admission is just $5 for young children and $10 for older people. The display is finest-suited for ages eight and up. Tickets are readily available at the venue entrance every evening and on the net at Eventbrite: www.eventbrite.com/e/386208739737.
