Come see our next performance for an unforgettable night of fun!
Are you READY for 2017?
Jabberbox Puppet Theater presents “Beauty and the Botanist,” inspired from a short story story by North Carolina poet and novelistFred Chappell.
The play is set n 18th century Sweden and highlights a troubled but magical time in the life of celebrated teacher and botanist, Carl Linnaeus. In the Age of Reason, scientific proof is everything, a woman’s role is to have babies and keep her husband cozy, and neither wild imaginations nor women belong in the Academy or botany lab. But Linnaeus is a maverick and so is Josefin, his favorite students’ fiance, and flowers have stamens and pistils. Oh my! The natural world has much to show them.
Join the merriment for salon-style adult puppet theater, featuring Jabberbox’s trademark, “brief puppet nudity.”
Performance schedule: May 19, 20,21; 26,27,28; June 2,3,4; 9,10,11; and 16,17,18. Sunday matinees at 2 PM, $10.00.
Evening performances start at 8:30. Guests are encouraged to arrive at 8 PM for wine on the porch, home-made dessert included in the ticket price of $15.00
This is a one-act play without intermission. Seating is limited to 20 people per performance.
We’ll begin taking reservations in April.
