Our NEXT show at the Jazz Cafe in the Music Hall
on January 28, 2018 at 2:00 pm
Inspired by a West African tale.
When Ananse wants to earn the right to tell stories to his people
the sky god Nyame gives him three daunting tasks.
“Kwaku Ananse, the spider man, he loved to talk, he loved to hear and tell stories.
And he wanted to own all the stories in the world, so he could share them with all of you, his friends.”
Vince Paul, Music Hall’s President & Artistic Director, notes that “as the downtown area real estate
becomes increasingly in demand, it’s imperative that our city’s non-commercial performing artists
be able to continue to present their work in the heart of the Entertainment District.
The artists of PuppetART create top-notch, finely crafted work that has been entertaining
children and families for some twenty years, and Music Hall is thrilled
to be able to help them sustain their success.”
PUPPETART, DETROIT PUPPET THEATER, HAS BEEN ENTERTAINING
AND EDUCATING CHILDREN AND ADULTS FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS THROUGH ITS
THEATER, STUDIO, AND MUSEUM.
THE APPRECIATION OF ART BEGINS!
"Our mission is to explore a variety of
cultures and to foster an appreciation of the
wisdom of traditions, the beauty of spirit,
and the art of diverse communities, through
puppet performances, exhibits, and classes".
PUPPETART OFFERS PERFORMANCES, PUPPETRY CLASSES, AND MUSEUM EXHIBITS
THROUGHOUT THE SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN AREA.
