An Online Puppet Theater Performance
Thursday, Jan 14 at 6:00pm
or Thursday, Jan 21, 2021 at 7:15pm
Join KMP for a short, virtual puppet theater performance.
The Ruby is a virtual puppet theater presentation of an ancient fable, staged and filmed at KMP, so we could bring you this charming story in your own home. We think you’ll enjoy the delightful story of one puppet’s search for the meaning of life, the beautifully handcrafted puppets, and the interesting visit with the puppeteers, as they share insights into the magic of puppetry.
The Ruby is another experiment into bringing new types of entertainment to our audiences in new ways. The performance is free, but please consider a small donation to help support the theater during these challenging times. We hope you love the show!
One Slight Hitch
By Lewis Black
It’s Courtney’s wedding day and her mom, Delia, is making sure that everything is perfect. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect, and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will be perfect. Then the doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose. So much for perfect. This Lewis Black comedy will not disappoint!
Directed by Traci Tousey.
Driving Miss Daisy
By Alfred Uhry
At age 72, Daisy Werthan has crashed her car for the last time. Her son hires her a driver, and for the next 25 years, Hoke drives “Miss Daisy.” Daisy is a wealthy Jewish southerner with a sharp tongue, while Hoke is a thoughtful, employed black man, whom Daisy regards with disdain and who, in turn, is not impressed with his employer’s patronizing tone and, he believes, her latent prejudice. Driving Miss Daisy is the warm-hearted, humorous and affecting story of the development of their unlikely friendship.
Directed by William Hitt.
The Odd Couple, Female Version
By Neil Simon
Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon’s hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. Hard to believe, but this updated version of a comedic classic is even funnier than the original.
Directed by Robb Bessey.
Five Women Wearing the Same Dress
By Alan Ball
During an ostentatious wedding reception, five reluctant bridesmaids have their own reasons for hiding out in an upstairs bedroom. Frances is a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist. Mindy is the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom. Georgeanne is coping badly with the heartbreak of her own failed marriage. Meredith, the bride’s younger sister, has a dark secret. And Trisha may have to reconsider her die-hard cynicism about men when she meets Tripp, a charming bad-boy usher. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent, and touching celebration of women’s spirit.
Directed by Naomi Tiefel.
