About the Event
Two actors from HMTC perform with puppets a social awareness story. For maximal audience enjoyment sign language and closed caption will be used. Event has been filmed for YouTube
Hanford Multicultural Theater Company received an Arts and Accessibility Grant from the California Arts Council in June of 2020. Originally, the grant was to allow people with disabilities to enjoy all aspects of the puppet theater experience, including performance. With the pandemic restrictions, thinking out of the box became necessary along with safety measures. As well, filming the puppet play in our three year old company became an additional experience that we are happy to continue. The story discusses citizen responsibility when eye-witnessing societal issues. The main characters is Huey, and his friend Louee who uses a wheelchair. This puppet show is a first for our theater. This film production of the puppet show is also a first. HMTC has been enriched by this grant and the current restrictions to continue using film as part of our repertoire. Enormous thanks to Mark Saltzman for training Huey and Louee puppeteers and introducing HMTC to the world of theater. Huey and Louee will come back again for another puppet performance.
