Unmatched in artistry, grace and movement, the internationally acclaimed Cashore Marionettes redefine the art of puppetry. Prepare to enter “a wonderful world of breathtaking magic” as founder and award-winning puppeteer Joseph Cashore performs Simple Gifts, a series of touching portrayals and poignant scenes from everyday life set to stunning music by composers such as Vivaldi, Strauss, Beethoven and Copland. Through a combination of virtuoso manipulation, beautiful music, theatrical illusion and artistic insight, the original vignettes presented in Simple Gifts provide an entertaining and sensitive vision of what it is to be human.Cashore’s characters come to life in an amazingly convincing way in this unforgettable theatrical experience for audiences of all ages!
