NOW EXTENDED THROUGH DECEMBER 6!|
This classic Brothers Grimm story brims with singing birds, dancing bones, and barking trunks. Add a live band to blast the brutish stepmother and soothe the sobbing sister, and you get a not-to-be missed whirl of fairytale fun where everyone (who's supposed to) lives happily ever after.
Michael Sommers (Open Eye founder and Artist-in-Residence) continues his creative collaboration with Michael Koerner (composer). A cast of actors/puppeteers includes Robert Rosen as the Stepmother, Julian McFaul as the Father, Justin Spooner as the Boy, Liz Schachterle as the Mother and Tara Loeper as the Bird Woman.
"...the show boasts a spectacular visual appeal, with a cast of incredibly expressive marionettes..." - Twin Cities Daily Planet
"Innovative storytelling at its best, using multiple art forms that come together to create something truly unique." - Cherry and Spoon
"Composer Michael Koerner leads a small ensemble through music of Koerner's that becomes as much a part of the design as Sommers' visual creations." - Star Tribune
