Mutiny on the Bounty – Toy Theater

Mutiny on the Bounty - Toy Theater

International performers Michael and Valerie Nelson of Magical Moonshine Theatre will share some of their toy theater collection and performances. The Nelsons have toured their award winning toy theater productions across the US and at various festivals throughout Europe and Latin America. They also use toy theater as a teaching tool for elementary aged children. Come and learn more about this Victorian era paper puppet form, explore some rare books, drink wine and enjoy snacks provided by the McCune. The event is free.

The Nelsons will be performing their version of “Mutiny on the Bounty,” complete with live ukulele music and dancing hula girls

Mutiny on the Bounty – A toy theater work with lots of animation! Think blue-green oceans, mermaids, fragrant breezes, native women, warm waterfalls, flowers everywhere and weather where clothing is only for decoration, and you are on your way to this lush, tropical treatment of the famous mutiny; a treatment that ignores all of the mutinous controversy in favor of the archetypal island fantasy. Contains lots of dancing, ukuleles, surfing, bathing, and a few tropical drinks in the hammock. Oh. And some long rowing for Captain Bligh. And some tattoos. Runs about 25 minutes.

Most of Magical Moonshine Theatre’s performances are designed for youth and family audiences.  Although we prepare material that is designed for children, we do not play down to children.  Adults enjoy our shows as much as the children because the content is intelligent.  Children under the age of 3 years, while welcome at many of our shows (if they do not distract other audience members) are generally considered a bit young for the performances.
