The Mitten: A Shadow Puppet Fable

Theatreworks, JParker Arts, and Katy Williams Designs are collaborating to bring the Pikes Peak Region a winter wonderland of a show unlike any they have ever seen, just in time to uplift those winter blues, a delightful retelling of the Ukranian folktale THE MITTEN, about a lost present and a troupe of delightful animals now set in Colorado!

In February 2021, safely masked members will join small, socially-distanced audience groups. Each group will move to stations around the Ent Center for the Arts watching puppeteers bring this delightful midwinter tale to life, along with original music and narration. Because of the small group nature of this event, tickets are limited. Delicious seasonal treats will be available.

Katy Williams is a Denver based creator that specializes in building and teaching puppets, props, and makeup design. Julie Parker works in many media from puppets to costuming, each project is a unique creation utilizing found and recycled materials. 

Accessibility advisory: this production takes place around the exterior of the Ent Center. Audiences will move from station to station. The path is fully wheelchair accessible, 90% paved with a short gravel section. While a few chairs will be available at each station, this is not a seated event. Patrons who do not use a wheelchair should be prepared for 35 minutes of standing or walking.

The Mitten content advisory: This production contains animals, knitting, and skunks. We have created it for all ages. Because everyone is different, we are always happy to talk with you if you have specific questions. Please email clowans@uccs.edu

Face coverings must be worn at all times while attending this event. 6-foot social distancing will be required between parties.
