Neighborhood Night Puppet Show

Neighborhood Night Puppet Show

Thu, September 26 2019 · 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Midtown Global Market

Midtown Global Market will host six, FREE Heart of the Beast performances in the Midtown Central Court on Thursday nights during the weekly Neighborhood Night celebrations this fall.

Join us for a two hour “Make-n-Take” workshop with Puppet Artist Anne Sawyer. You’ll leave with your own puppet creation to take home! We’ll be making MONSTER PUPPETS, using doo-dads and found objects. Things that wriggle and jiggle and go boo!


Heart of the Beast uses water, flour, newspaper, paint, and unlimited imagination to tell stories that explore the struggles and celebrations of human existence. Drawing inspiration from the world’s traditions of puppet and mask theatre and its lively roots in transformative ritual and street theatre, HOBT creates vital, poetic theater for all ages and backgrounds.

Midtown Global Market is an internationally-themed public marketplace offering groceries, great food and unique gifts. Midtown Global Market, owned by two non-profit entities: the Cultural Wellness Center and the Neighborhood Development Center, serves as a small business incubator whose mission is to provide access and opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs. Together these entities make up a dynamic community gathering place that highlights the talent, ambition and cultural assets that characterize its neighborhood, contributing to its economic and social fabric.
