Grey Seal Puppets visits Columbia Marionette Theat...

Presented by Columbia Marionette Theatre at Columbia Marionette Theatre

CMT has always been committed to creating quality puppet shows and we are excited to begin a new tradition of bringing accomplished and innovative guest puppeteers to our audiences. The first will be Drew Allison of Grey Seal Puppets, three time winner of the UNIMA award, puppetry’s highest honor. He will perform on Saturday, November 1st at 11 and 3: The Emperor’s New Clothes What’s big and fat and pink and loves to dress up in fancy clothes? Give up? It’s the Emperor himself in Grey Seal Puppets’ clever adaptation of The Emperor’s New Clothes. Not only is this Emperor big, fat and pink, he just happens to be a pig. The Hans Christian Andersen story takes on a whole new dimension as this classic is transformed into a fable. The crafty tailors are foxes; the prime minister a near-sighted camel; and the councilor, a befuddled old walrus. Even the audience takes part, as animals, of course.
