Strumply Peter

Strumply Peter at Open Eye Figure Theatre
Friday, February 21, 2014 - 7:30pm to Sunday, March 9, 2014 - 4:00pm

Created by Michael Sommers
Written in collaboration with Joseph Evans
Composed by Eric Jensen
February 21 - March 9, 2014

Strumply Peter, a Toy Opera, is the latest original creation from Open Eye Figure Theatre, inspired by the cautionary poems 19th century German physician Heinrich Hoffman composed to entertain his children. These amusing poems of misbehaving children will be brought to life in a parade of puppetry perfect for the intimate scale of Open Eye's stage with toy theatre, Cantastoria (story songs), and larger than life characters accompanied by a miniature music hall band! The piece is designed for all-ages. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

Michael Sommers (Open Eye founder and Artist-in-Residence) continues his creative collaboration with Joseph Evans (script) and Eric Jensen (composer). A cast of actors/puppeteers includes Liz Schachterle, Tara Loeper and Noah Sommers Haas. In a surprise move, Sommers has cast Keith Lester in the role of the Mother. Lester is the recently retired school superintendent from Brooklyn Center.

Saturday, March 8th - ASL performance (reservations must be made by March 1st, please email or call 612-874-6338)
