Thistle Theatre presents: Gingerbread Boy
Every child's dream come true a magical world of candy, cookies and ice cream. Ollie the Oven bakes cakes and cookies, Bill the Chill makes ice cream treats and Sweetie, a copper kettle, cooks up candy and chocolate confections. When too much spice is poured into the batter, out pops a mischievous Gingerbread Boy who stops the
production of holiday goodies. Pepper Mint, a shipping clerk, runs after the Gingerbread Boy on a chase though Candyland. The chase takes them through Candy Cane Lane, past a Snow Man in the Icicle Alps and into the Soda Swamp inhabited by the Gummi Gator. The traditional story told with an original twist.
Thistle Theatre specializes in tabletop Bunraku, a variation of the ancient Japanese style of puppetry. The puppeteers, dressed head-to-toe in black to suggest invisibility, operate all of the character's limbs by hand from behind. A talented ensemble of puppeteers, Ben Burris, Zane Exactly and Gina Wilhelm performs all character voices and songs live in a production directed by Jean Enticknap with music and songs by Sue Ennis.
Funded in part by 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax Fund.
