The (7th Annual) Horrific Puppet Affair
HomeGrown Theatre Presents The (7th Annual) Horrific Puppet Affair

For a generation of kids raised on PeeWee's Playhouse, Dinosaurs and, of course, Sesame Street, puppets are practically a primal link, a cord tying kids raised in the 1980s to that burst of creativity in the afterglow of punk rock, the advent of The Simpsons and MTV. Although, puppets may be a childs' entree to the weirdness of real life, the playmakers at HomeGrown Theatre know this to be true: puppets arent just for kids. Enter the Horrific Puppet Affair, a cabaret of short horror puppet plays built to make your inner child squirm and scream. A punk-rock continuation of the Victorian art of Toy Theatre, the Horrific Puppet Affair tells strange stories through a wide variety of puppets, hand and rod, shadow-play, marionette, and other bizarre summations.

If we charged what it costs us to build this production, we would have to charge $35 a ticket, however to keep tickets affordable, tickets are always pay-what-you-can with a $10 minimum. If you can afford $35, we ask that you pay that. If you can only afford $10, thats fine too! We understand everyones financial situation is different, and we want to make this production available to everyone.
