With overhead projectors, shadow puppets, actors in silhouette, and live music—and virtually no dialog—this is a mythic reinvention of the classic coming-of-age story. A lonely adolescent girl living with her mother in the desert becomes obsessed with a soulful country music duo. Inspired by their music, she runs away from home and into a world of danger, deception, and disappointment, all hauntingly depicted in shadow and light.
Join us as we celebrate one of humanity’s oldest art forms. Overture’s first-ever Puppet Festival brings together the traditional and the modern, the enchanting and the irreverent, all to surprise and delight you and yours.
