Thistle Theatre presents: Baba Yaga and the Bag of Gold
Baba Yaga, the infamous witch who flies around in a mortar and pestle, steals a bag of gold from Vasilisa and her younger brother, Ivan. The brave, but foolish, Ivan sets off to recover the family treasure and literally finds himself in hot water. A fascinating assortment of characters, including Baba Yaga's cat, a rabbit and a family of mice complete the cast of characters in this Slavic tale. Black light scenes of a hut that walks on chicken legs and a dancing fence of skulls and bones are featured in the production using tabletop Bunraku-style of puppetry.

Jean Enticknap who created and directs the production, wrote the story in the style of the wonder tale genre in which a character is given some form of magic to help them with their quest. Puppeteers Ben Burris, Zane Exactly and Gina Wilhelm bring the story to life. A musical score, created by Michael Flint, accompanies the story. The production is funded in part by 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax Fund.

Thistle Theatre specializes in the Bunraku-style of puppetry, an ancient Japanese art form.  Although the style has been modified for modern audiences and performers, the basic idea remains the same: puppeteers who dress entirely in black to symbolize their invisibility operate the puppets.
