Rough House Puppet Theater presents:
☆ Sad Songs for Bad People ☆
~Suggested Donation at Door~
Outfitted with piles of puppets and an indomitable love of the macabre, a ragtag troupe of performers takes the stage. With freshly polished shoes and a can-do smile, they’re here to let us trade in our troubles for an evening of murder ballads, ditties of death, and songs of tragic misfortune. But as puppet casualties accumulate, ill-buried tensions begin to surface and threaten to shatter the troupe’s facade.
Accompanied by the live jams of the Rough House band and featuring dozens of hand-crafted puppets, Sad Songs for Bad People will delight you, titillate you, gingerly prod the soft spot in your heart, and scratch the darkest of your itches.
Performed by Kay Kron, Maddy Low, Claire Saxe, Mike Oleon, Sean Hughes and Andrew Yearick. With puppets by Grace Needlman, Cammi Upton, Will Rudolph, Eddy Rivera and Emma Alamo. Puppets and puppet direction by Mike Oleon. Co-directed by Jeremy Ohringer. Music Direction by Sean Hughes.
