Double, Double, Toil and Trouble!

Oct. 31 - Nov. 18, 2012

Trouble Puppet Theater Company presents Toil and Trouble, an adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth for puppet theater--an elegantly brutal play brought to life (and death) through puppetry, complete with witches, ghosts, and bloody skullduggery. Watch as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth achieve dazzling ambitions, overreach, and fall into hells of their own making.

**Prices are discounted on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and the first two Sundays!**

Adapted by Artistic Director Connor Hopkins (winner of B. Iden Payne Awards for Outstanding Direction of a Drama for The Jungle AND for Frankenstein as well as Outstanding Original Script for The Jungle and The Austin Examiner's Best New Play Written by an Austinite for The Jungle), Toil and Trouble will feature music by Graham Reynolds, lighting by Stephen Pruitt, sound design by Buzz Moran, and imagery by Chris Owen: what CultureMap calls "some of Austin's best creative minds at play."

Performers: Caroline Reck, Zac Crofford, Gricelda Silva, Jose Villarreal, Zeb West, Ellie McBride, Katy Horan, Rocky Hopson

**ASL interpreted show Sunday, Nov. 4, and additional dates TBA.** Email kathryn@troublepuppet.com to request specific dates.

Group sales welcome. Director/cast talkbacks available for groups of five or more.

Trouble Puppet Theater Company, founded in 2004, is dedicated to the creation of exceptional works of puppet theater, to the promotion of the art of puppetry, and to the support of its practitioners. We dig as deeply as we can into the possibilities that puppetry offers, in its many forms and styles, and seek to balance risk and exploration with a drive for excellent craft and technique. Our work is inspired not only by our artistic passion but by our social, political, and human convictions: that there can be no end to the struggle for knowledge and compassion, against injustice and intolerance.

Trouble Puppet is a sponsored project of Salvage Vanguard Theater and is supported by The Jim Henson Foundation, the City of Austin, and individual donors. Toil and Trouble is underwritten by Joel and Dina Sherzer, James and Sharon Reck, and Roger Thomas and is mounted with the generous support of The Creative Fund.

Salvage Vanguard Theater is a hub for Austin artists, audiences, and arts organizations. SVT creates and presents transformative, high-quality artistic experiences that foster experimentation and conversation.
