A rock-and-roll, horror-comedy sci-fi musical extravaganza.... WITH PUPPETS!
Featuring special guests: The Elephant
How do you fight the darkness when it feels like the world is ending? Sing, dance, and make merry—with puppets! Ashland comedy troupe extraordinaire, Puppeteers for Fears, returns with its first show in three years, The Cabaret at the End of the World, to give audiences mummy love ballads, investment advice from pirates, revolutionary cows doing beat poetry, smart appliances locked in virtual rap battles, puppet comedy roasts, and more! It’s the rock’n’roll, horror-comedy, all-puppet-vaudeville extravaganza you never knew you needed—until now…
Runtime for The Cabaret at the End of the World will be approximately 90-120 minutes, and though all ages are permitted to attend, the show will include material that would be rated PG-13 or R in film. Admission is $30. A taco bar is available for an additional $10.
Directed by Alyssa Marie Mathews and Katy Curtis, and starring Forest Gilpin, Jake Raiter, Hunter Prutch, and Alyssa Marie Mathews, with music performed live by The Elephant—who will also open the show with a set of their original material.
