Valentine's Puppet Cabaret

February 14th, 7:30pm
With ASL interpretation

For the love of puppets! Join HOBT & friends for a Valentine's Day Puppet Cabaret!

A fail-proof Valentine's day plan sure to:
- Not impress the person you're with
- Be more awkward than you are
- Give you a great story to tell your future grandkids

Because nothing says I love you like the faint smell of waffles, an awkward slanted floor, and experimental puppetry!

Tickets are $15 at the door (doors open at 7:30pm)
HOBT bar will be open (accepts cash & cards)

Live Music! Booze! Popcorn! Waffles! Puppets?

Recommended for ages 14 and older.

Call for Artists

Calling all puppeteers & performers: HOBT is seeking applications for our upcoming Puppet Cabaret on February 14th.

As HOBT and MayDay enters a moment of metamorphosis and transformation, so does Puppet Cabaret! 

Steve Ackerman & Akiko, co-curators of Puppet Cabaret, are excited to expand the circle of cabaret artists by seeking (short!) applications for our upcoming Puppet Cabaret on February 14th at 7:30pm! Selected artists will be given a stipend of $75 and 15 hours rehearsal/build space at In the Heart of the Beast Theatre.

Performances should be 5-10 minutes in length, and in some way, somehow, involve puppetry.  Puppetry covers a wide variety of forms, from hand, shadow, rod, finger, to crankie, cantastoria, to randomly moving around a trash bag in a poetic manner.  We are open to you challenging that definition and encourage those of all skill levels in the form to apply.  

Artists chosen will be given a stipend of $75 and 15 hrs. rehearsal/build space at In the Heart of the Beast Theatre.  Artists will also receive 2 complimentary tickets to the cabaret.

Ready to propose? Submit an online proposal here. 

Application deadline: Friday, January 17th by 6pm

Selections will be made by the Puppet Cabaret curators, Steve Ackerman and Akiko Ostlund.

Submit an online proposal here.
