Tickets still available for Baker’s Dozen Fri Apr 24

Rub-a-dub-dub, the Baker was found dead in the tub! Ever wonder what the Butcher, the Baker and the Candlestick Maker were doing in that tub together? Take a peek into the Butcher’s murder trial to find out. In Baker’s Dozen, a single puppeteer transforms one puppet into 12 angry jurors.

Baker’s Dozen was a hit at the 2014 Toronto Fringe Festival and was filmed for Bell Media’s On Stage On Demand series. The show comes to Hamilton in April prior to being performed as the opening act for comedian Rick Mercer this upcoming May.

The Butcher’s future rests in the jury’s hands in the one-man puppet courtroom dramedy that is the Baker’s Dozen.

Tickets for Baker’s Dozen are $18, $15 for students and seniors. Tickets are available at the venue (by cash only) on the day of the performance or in advance online. Visit babygumm.com for further info.

Mature audiences only.

Children’s Puppet Show — Carlos and His 5 Reasons

Staircase Show Reviewed!

Inspired by a Spanish folk-tale, Carlos and His 5 Reasons is a delightful puppet play in the table-top style, featuring a little boy and the many witches hidden in his home. Join Carlos as he attempts to solve his problems in a rather unconventional manner, and discovers his own resourcefulness in the process. Shadow play and a live music introduction are also included in this magical story.  Carlos and His Five Reasons is based on a traditional folk-tale originally written in Spanish, translated by Barbara Raimondi and edited by Kerry Corrigan, Marie Franek and Helena Adamczyk into a puppet play, featuring a young boy named Carlos, and the six witches that he encounters. The story takes an amusing and light-hearted approach to this tale of a young boy learning to deal with his anger Felt puppets were constructed by Marie Franek and the set was built by Gary Santucci, with props and decoration by Helena Adamczyk and Anne Parker. The play lasts approximately 35 minutes, and is only a little frightening for the wee ones (so far, they’ve all survived!).
