SHIP OF FOOLS: a Giant Puppet Odyssey Performance by String & Shadow Thursday, August 17th | 6:00pm-8:00pm Three fools set sail from the Port of Styx - the bustling center of all interdimensional shipping and cargo bound for a world beyond the horizon. Steered by a mysteriously absent captain and his skeleton crew, their ship traverses a vast and tumultuous ocean. Along the way, its passengers encounter unusual sea-creatures and raucous storms, stars that dance and jellyfish that float, among many other peculiarities. A nautical journey for all ages, Ship of Fools is filled to the brim with giant puppets, transforming sets, masks, and dance - and all set to live, original music. Ship of Fools is brought to life by 11 puppeteers and musicians - and by you! The audience! The Port Angeles Fine Arts Center is thrilled to bring you this performance by String and Shadow Puppet Theater, a multidisciplinary performance collective based in Olympic, Washington. The performance will take place in the meadow of Webster's Woods. Ice cream will be available for purchase from local favorite, Welly's Ice Cream! Bring a lawn chair, blanket, and a picnic, and enjoy a perfect summer night getting lost in this fantastical story! Learn more about String and Shadow at:
