Cashore Marionettes Inspire With Scenes of Everyday Life
Lake Placid, NY: The Lake Placid Center for the Arts (LPCA) is pleased to present Cashore Marionettes on Wednesday, September 18 at 6:00 PM. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Tickets are available by calling the LPCA Box Office at 518.523.2512 or online at www.lakeplacidarts.org.
The masterful Cashore Marionettes will perform Simple Gifts, a series of touching portrayals and poignant scenes from everyday life set to stunning music by such composers as Vivaldi, Strauss, Beethoven and Copland.
Cashore brings a range of different marionettes to the stage, all intricately complex in their own way. From a violin-playing musician to a galloping horse, audiences will be introduced to an impressive world of nuance, humor, and emotion.
As founder-artist Joseph Cashore has explained, the themes explored on stage are universal. Viewers rave about how the puppets so clearly display a wide range of feelings, even without words. Their movements are so realistic, the award-winning Cashore Marionettes bring a sense of enchantment and magic to children and adults alike.
About Cashore Marionettes
Joseph Cashore has received numerous awards for his artistry including a Pew Fellowship for Performance Art, based upon his artistic accomplishment; a Henson Foundation Grant, an award intended to help promote puppetry to adult audiences; and a Citation of Excellence from the UNIMA-USA, the highest honor an American puppeteer can receive. The Cashore Marionettes are so well conceived and projected, the movement so convincing, the illusion so powerful, that the result is a compelling and unforgettable theatrical experience.
