Lawrence, KS, United States, 66044
Cost: Adult $21/ Student or Youth $10

Rarely has life been imitated with such precision or with such pathos. Joseph Cashore’s hand-built marionettes replicate stunning effects, like toes wiggling from the hole in a shoe and a mother holding her squirming newborn. Set to recorded music by Beethoven, Strauss and Copland, each scene is powerful, surprising and one-of-a-kind.

Each vignette is simple and yet, you forget the characters are fabrications, stitched together by a supremely gifted puppet-master. From the performance of the grand old violinist Maestro Zelinka to Johnny Lobotomy’s heavy metal rock guitar frets, each marionette offers a moment to be treasured.

You will be doubled over laughing as Broadway’s Next H!T Musical presents the only unscripted theatrical awards show. Master improvisers gather made up, hit-song suggestions from the audience and create a spontaneous evening of music, humor and laughter. The audience votes for its favorite song and watches as the cast turns it into a full-blown improvised musical — complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue and plot twists galore.

The show is under the direction of improv veterans Rob Schiffman and Deb Rabbai. TheaterWeek hailed Broadway’s Next H!T Musical as “brilliant” and The New York Post called it “remarkable.” The show has been seen recently at The Triad, Tribeca Film Festival, and at the New York Musical Theater Festival, among many others.

The weird and wonderful family we all love comes to devilishly delightful life in The Addams Family. You won’t want to miss this story. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

The musical has been on tour all through the United States, is currently in Brazil and Australia and will be visiting more countries soon to be announced.
