The Simpich Showcase Theatre will present a Special Easter season engagement of Portraits: A Puppeteer’s True Story, 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.
