Puss in Boots

The Commedia Puss in Boots

Lunch and Performances December 5, 12, 19, 2015

Theatre for the wee ones in mind, and still fun for the entire family! And a lunch, to boot!

Enjoy the physical humor and witty banter of our poor, but merry, band of traveling performers – Arlequin, Punchin, Columbine, Rosetta, Pantalone, and Scaramouch – as they tell their own version of the classic children’s tale.

Puss in Boots is the story of the foolish youngest son of a miller, who follows the advice of a clever cat in extraordinary footwear to achieve nobility and a fine marriage.  Of course, the players (Columbine, Arlequin, Punchin, Scaramouch, Rosetta and Pantalone) embellish the story with their own form of magic.  There’s a laundry list of laughs for children of all ages!

Performed in the style of Commedia dell-arte – which is Italian for “comedy of the professional artists” – a popular form of theatre since the 15th century. It is the fore-father of slapstick comedy as performed by the Marx Brothers and just about any animated features by productions companies such as Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks.

Suggested ages are 4 year olds to adults! Tickets just $10.

Doors open at 11:00 am. Lunch starts at 11:20 am.
Performance at noon and done by one!
