Help Save the Monkey!


About the Show

Preview Performance & Taping<br>
Recommended for children ages 5 to 10 years old, and adults who like awesome things. 

8-year-old Howard and 80-year-old Lillian must rush to save her monkey who is about to land from space. Despite set-backs, anxieties, and lasers, their friendship helps them on this epic adventure. 

Underscored by fabulous original music, this sublimely silly work uses puppets, dance, and fake mustaches to explore the themes of failure, resilience, and aging. The action spills into house and we will ask you, the audience, to help save the monkey! 
This new work from collaborators Liz Hara and Marta Mozelle MacRostie was awarded a 2014 Jim Henson Foundation Family Grant, was workshopped at Dixon Place's PuppetBlok! last winter, and is in residence at Standard Toy Kraft this fall. 

This performance will be taped for archival and promotional purposes, and all audience members will need to sign a release form.
