Not Just For Kids                Sat. & Sun.

The Refinery

Who says puppet shows are just for the little ones? The stage at the Refinery may be plush and perky during the day but in the evening the puppets will take a decidedly darker turn. Puppet Slam is a two night performance by local artists full of mature content. It’s all a fundraiser for Stumped Productions, that’s the new troupe staging Titus A as part of the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival this summer. Turns out creating 44 puppets from scratch for the show takes a lot of cash and Saskatoon’s arts community is turning out to help. Tickets for this show are $20 – $25.
