    String and Shadow's 5th Annual Giant Puppet Show: Or So It Would Seam: A Giant Puppet Voyage Into the Hidden Universe!

    More Information (95.3 KGY is not responsible for external websites)

    Or So It Would Seam begins at the beginning of... everything. From ancient asteroids recounting the origins of the universe to a subway train traveling across dimensions. It is equal parts outer-space odyssey, whimsical fairy tale, and slap-stick clown show. A sci-fi folktale populated with succulent moons and mountainous planets. Or So It Would Seam will take audiences out of this galaxy to contemplate the intricate and unexpected ways we are all connected to one another. 

    This show will be filled to the brim with giant puppets, original storytelling, and live music and feature a cast of 13 performers/musicians. They are: Emily McHugh, Donald Palardy III, Elizabeth Lord, Luz Gaxiola, Jordan Richards, Eva Leach, Stella R.S., Harrison Hannon, Aurora Sonenshine, Ellora Indrik Stone, Razz Yoshioka, Velva Kelly and Kelsey Magnuson.

    String and Shadow is a theater company based in Olympia, Washington. Each summer, they create a giant outdoor touring puppet show that weaves together a variety of puppetry styles, circus arts, and original music. With copious amounts of cardboard, fabric, and paper-mache, String and Shadow's worlds of fantasy and fable aim to pluck at the strings of universal wonder, innocence, and joy. Formed in the summer of 2020 to bring a Drive-In puppet show to their community in lock-down, String and Shadow has gone on to create five original full length shows and to tour regionally and nationally in the United States. They are currently a company-in-residence at The Olympia Family Theater.
    6:30pm Fridays-Sundays June 28,29,30 and July 5,6,7,12,13,14,19,20 and 21. Plus two matinees at 2:30 pm July 14 and 21.
