Event

QWETI: TALES OF THE MAKAH TRIBE
"This has been our home since the beginning of time.  The land and the sea give us everything we need..." so begins the life-sized storyteller puppet as she recounts the tales of the trickster Qweti, gluttonous Raven, and mean Basket Ogress.  In these humorous adventures, learn how Bluejay got her crest, why you should never let beautiful octopus lady give you a hug and how Qweti, in his magical canoe, defeats the sea monster inhabiting the Straits of Juan de Fuca.  Music by the Greene and Hottowe Families of Neah Bay.  Hand-carved cedar figures by Duane Pasco.  With special thanks to the Elders of the Makah Tribe for sharing many of their stories and songs with us, we are honored to share some of Qweti's legends with you.

Q&A

Question: what age group? My toddlers are 3 1/2
Answer: 3 1/2 might be OK. We don't give exact age recommendations because it varies with individual kids. Some children that young have enjoyed the show while others, even older, have not been able to make it through the show. The main things to keep in mind are duration (about 50 minutes) and the dark theater (some kids are just scared of the dark). For this particular show, some have been startled at the beginning when the lights go out, drumming music is heard and a life-size storyteller puppet enters the stage. Also, Basket Ogress might be a little scary but she is portrayed rather comically in this show and gets tricked by Qweti in the end. Similar to the Big Bad Wolf, this Basket Ogress was used to teach kids to watch out and not wander off on their own. Hope that is helpful to you in your decision making. Please feel free to contact us with any other questions/concerns. Thanks! info@nwpuppet.org

Question: What happen to your 7pm shows on Friday's will you ever have those again?
Answer: Sorry! If there is sufficient interest, we will bring back evening shows. With mostly family audiences, the evening performances did not seem so popular. We still have evening showings of our marionette operas. We are also preparing to start showing some puppet films with the first one tentatively scheduled for the first Friday of the new year. Stay tuned for more details. Thanks for your interest.
