Thistle Theatre’s “Aesop’s Fables” May 18 and 19, 2019
Thistle Theatre concludes its 2018-19 season with Aesop’s Fables (Greece) on May 18 and 19, at 1:00 and 3:00 p.m.
Thistle Theatre is the only performing arts organization in the Pacific Northwest that specializes in Bunraku puppets, an ancient Japanese style of puppetry. The puppeteers, dressed head-to-toe in black to suggest invisibility, operate all of the character’s limbs by hand from behind. Thistle Theatre serves as a training ground for puppeteers/actors, designers, puppet builders, songwriters, and playwrights. The puppets, props, and scenery are designed and created by Thistle Theatre artists. Productions are carefully crafted to have layers of action and language to please audiences of all ages.
Thistle Theatre presents affordable, professional puppet theatre for families and schools at three locations in the Puget Sound area, including the Sunset Hill Community Association.
