At 6pm, special guests Z Puppets Rosenschnoz will perform “A la Carte: In a Fool’s Kitchen.” The show includes a comic battle between a clown French Chef and a wily lobster set to live accordion music. This playfully interactive comedy will feature clowning, puppetry, music, and a few unruly vegetables.
One-half Monty Python and one-half Sesame Street, Z Puppets Rosenschnoz delights children and their adults with feats of imagination, mixing hand-crafted puppetry and zany comedy with live music.
Z Puppets has earned many awards, including support from the Jim Henson Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, Puppeteers of America and Minnesota State Arts Board.
Based in Minneapolis, Z Puppets tour their family-friendly comedies across the country. Appearances have included the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, the National Puppetry Festival, the Walker Art Center and Boston’s Puppet Showplace Theatre.
Z artists have an extensive background teaching classes, workshops and residencies for students of all ages and abilities. Creative Directors Aronson and Griffith have served as arts education specialists for the Perpich Center for Arts Education, Children’s Theatre Company and the Educational Theater Association.
This program is made possible by a Library Legacy Grant. All programs are free.
