More About Center for Puppetry Arts launches SPACE!: Sensory-Friendly Sunday

Earthlings are invited to join an intergalactic rock-and-roll voyage through the solar system and beyond during the Center for Puppetry Arts’ production of SPACE!, on stage now through October 20. The show’s fun, fact-filled look at the final frontier blasts off from the puppet stage with a balance of entertainment and education for all ages to enjoy.

A band of five rocking space aliens present a host of scientific facts about planets, stars, meteors and more! Audience members are beamed aboard to join the celestial crew, where they learn about gravitational pull with Sir Isaac Newton, gaze at Saturn's rings with Galileo, rock out on the asteroid belt and zoom off to the edge of the universe. Explorers learn what fuels the sun, how planets got their names and other fun facts about the universe. This cosmic adventure is filled with special effects, hundreds of NASA and Jet Propulsion Laboratory images, a host of unusual characters and an eclectic musical score of 15 original songs.

Written and directed by the Center’s Artistic Director Jon Ludwig with music composed by John Cerreta, SPACE! blends rod, shadow and black light puppetry to offer a fresh take on science for all ages. The show is performed by Amy Sweeney, Dolph Amick, Luis R. Hernandez, Jimmica Collins and Tim Sweeney. All puppets, props and scenery were created onsite by the Center’s talented team of artists.

The Center for Puppetry Arts is continuing its dedication to programming for patrons with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with Sensory-Friendly Sunday on October 13. Sensory-friendly modifications will be made to the 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. performances as well as in the Worlds of Puppetry Museum from noon-5 p.m. and in the Create-A-Puppet Workshopsâ„¢ from noon-5 p.m. The Center will also provide social stories, a quiet room, noise-reducing headphones, sunglasses and fidget toys for guests wishing to use those resources.
