Go Support Puppets Amongus This Coming Weekend

Posted By on Mon, Aug 20, 2012 at 4:50 PM

If you’ve ever been to a local event where there were big, extraordinary puppets, and you thought to yourself, “Who the hell took that much time to make big, extraordinary puppets?”, the answer is Puppets Amongus.

The puppet troupe has been invited to showcase its stuff at the World Puppet Carnival (yes, there is such a thing) next month in Almaty, Kazakhstan. But in order to do so, they need to raise the dough it will cost to get them there—which means this week we get treated to a preview of the show they’ll be performing there.

Puppets Amongus will be performing its Day of the Dead-themed show, El Sueño de Frida—a tribute to Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera—at the event, with musical accompaniment from Jimmy Carr, who will also perform with his band The Awkward Moments. The Silver Thread Trio rounds out the bill. If you’re debating whether to bring the kiddies along, here’s a note from the puppet masters: “This show is most appropriate for mature audiences due to artistic, puppet romance scenes. However, many children do enjoy the show, depending on parental discretion.”

The benefit for Puppets Amongus takes place at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 25, at the Rogue Theatre, 300 E. University Blvd., Suite 150. Tickets are $20 and available in advance by calling 628-1309. For more info, call 444-5538, or send an email to
