The Selfish Giant

My latest project post Sunset Boulevard is an adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Selfish Giant. Matt Conner and I adapted the script, along with Laura Connors Hull. Margie jervis was the scenic designer and Puppet Designer. This new adaptation features new original songs by Matt Conner.
This is my first foray into large scale puppeteering, and I am really loving it! This will hopefully be only the first exploration of this art for me, as I am enjoying the challenge of it. It is a whole new level of conveying emotion and expression that is just fascinating to me. Margie Jervis has designed such a wonderful puppet that it is easy to convey his emotions. The songs by Matt Conner are both joyous and moving when they need to be. They are simply gorgeous...but's Matt Conner. What do you expect? lol.
The show runs on Friday nights, Saturdays at 2 and &:30, and Sundays at 2pm for the next 3 weekends. tickets are $12 Adults, $10 Children. For more information, or to purchase tickets, click HERE or call
