We bring back the enchanting puppet theater whose shows last season were canceled by the shutdown in March. Joseph Cashore takes the art of puppetry to new heights, analyzing movement mechanics and human expression to create intricately engineered and lovingly sculpted marionettes, which he brings alive in performances that have moved audiences across the U.S., Europe and Asia. Set to classical music favorites, Simple Gifts is a captivating series of vignettes from everyday life.

Run Time: 90 Minutes
