Wish Work Puppet Series: The Box King

November 4 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Told with hand carved marionettes and a transforming cardboard box, The Box King is a family show following two kingdoms.
One with a queen and a kingdom that is clean and very well organized. One with a king and a kingdom that is incredibly forgetful but full of the happiest people you will ever meet.

These two kingdoms are joined together through the marriage of their leaders. But, what happens when the king loses the queen and cannot remember who anyone is any longer? Is putting everything and everyone into boxes the way to keep things organized, or is there more to an organized kingdom?

Conceived, Designed and Constructed by Seth Eberle
Directed by Kurt Hunter
Performed by Seth Eberle and Kallie Melvin
Music by Chase D. Burkhart

The Box King was supported by a family grant from the Jim Henson Foundation.

Wish Work, a program of Hinterhands Puppet Company, is puppet theatre for young audiences focused on telling stories working toward making the world the way we wish it to be. Performances will be held on Saturdays from 10:30AM-11:30AM. There is a suggested donation of $5-$10 per person. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

We wish to do the work of hammering the stardust of our world into puppet performances and workshops for young audiences, inspiring them to shape the stardust they are given into their wishes for the future.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts
Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
