SIMPLE GIFTS: Not Your Average Puppet Show
The Cashore Marionettes
May 15, 2017
Despite the title, SIMPLE GIFTS is a show that is anything BUT simple. This skillfully-performed puppet show is a depiction of human nature through a series of thoughtful and complex theatrical scenes, all backed with a beautiful classical track consisting of Vivaldi, Strauss, Beethoven, and Copeland. The scenes touch on moments in everyday life and the different emotions we feel along the way, from relationships and heartbreak to pain and happiness. The Cashore Marionettes use their exquisite power through movement to reach the audience members with their stories.
Joseph Cashore designs his own marionettes and has been performing and creating them for over 30 years. He has won several awards and a front cover story on Puppetry International magazine.
If you’re looking for something thought-provoking, SIMPLE GIFTS is for you. This show is relatable to ALL audiences, from children to adults. The whole family will be thrilled with such a unique theater experience!
