Join us for a one-of-a-kind puppetry experience! “Cardboard Explosion!” brings four original stories to life using nothing but cardboard and the power of your imagination. With help from the audience, puppeteer Brad Shur transforms simple cardboard shapes into elaborate puppet characters, then brings them to life right before your eyes. Get ready to outsmart dragons, choose-your-own superpower, and train adorable animal sidekicks in this fun, energetic, participatory show. A brief Membership Meeting with Elections will be held. Come to learn more about our upcoming move and our new building project status. Meet the Artist – Brad Shur - during light refreshments.
