“These players that I’ve sculpted in clay and tied to strings have, in truth, shaped me and held me up. Our time together on stage is a celebration of all I have learned and am continuing to learn from them…”
— David Simpich

Portraits: A Puppeteer’s True Story is an original theatre piece which brings to life an unusual array of biographical sketches using the art of marionette puppetry.  Puppeteer David Simpich has carefully chosen a collection of characters that have greatly influenced his own life. The cast includes King David, Helen Keller, Abraham Lincoln, Pinocchio, cave explorer Jim White, Joseph Merrick (The Elephant Man) and even Simpich’s own great grandmother, Harriet Ritter.
