Central MT Community Concert Series: Cashore Marionettes
What is a marionette? It is a puppet controlled from above by strings, not by a hand inside the puppet. In the U.S. puppet shows are often considered to be exclusively for children, whereas throughout the rest of the world puppet and marionette plays are classically performed for adult audiences. This Cashore Marionettes show is definitely for both: adults and children. The marionettes, their clothing, and all the props have been made entirely by Joseph Cashore. His wife Wilma is his assistant for his performances.
