Robopocalypse: the Musical!, by Puppeteers for Fears
Banks. Bridges. Cars. Artificial intelligence will be running all of them before long. But what happens when it all goes wrong?

Hilarity ensues, complete with singing puppets.

Since 2015, Ashland's Puppeteers for Fears have electrified audiences and sold out venues in every major market on the west coast with innovative and hilarious takes on mummies, werewolves, serial killers, sasquatches, UFOs, cosmic horror, and more. But for the big bad of their next show, they move from the supernatural to the completely-plausible: the technology we create that could one day replace us.

Jolie Daniels, teen hacker extraordinaire, tries to build a sentient robot for the school science fair as a means to reconnect with her fatherwho is still reeling from the death of Jolies motherbut she accidentally births a malevolent artificial intelligence in the process that she alone has the ability to stopif she can avoid the army of self-driving cars and web-connected smart gadgets that the A.I. has weaponized against her that is.

But this is a Puppeteers for Fears show, which means all that havoc plays out in song, and those songs are all 1980s-style synthpop that will have audiences struggling to stay in their seats instead of getting up to dance.

Two years in the making, Robopocalypse: the Musical!, is the biggest show Puppeteers for Fears has ever done, with a new cast of hand-and-rod puppets, 13 new songs written and performed on analog synthesizers by a live band, and fully immersive digital backdrops that allow the show to take place both in virtual reality, and IRL. It's got singing puppets, Minnesotan robots, talking cars, rap battles, the cast of Friends.... everything!

Equal parts Neuromancer, Max Headroom, and Liam Lynch, Robopoclaypse: the Musical! is the cyberpunk puppet extravaganza you never knew you needed until now.
