The Lost Children

LostChildren

The Lost Children is a ten-minute piece conceived for The Experimental Puppet Theater Festival at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, Georgia.  Directed by Jessica and designed by Jessica and Katarra, The Lost Children utilizes shadow puppetry to retell the French folk tale that inspired Hansel and Gretel.  Featuring original music by Luke, the piece premiered in the Spring of 2009 with narration by Patrick Martin and a number of very talented new puppeteers. It was then remounted in New York with a new cast and played at our “Drinking With Puppets” fundraiser. This cast also brought the show out of town to UConn’s Fall 2014 Puppet Slam! You can download the new version of the song at our Bandcamp page. Watch: The Lost Children
