The Wizard of Oz
The story is instantly recognizable: a tornado plucks a girl and her canine companion from a monochrome life in Kansas and flings them to a magical world populated by witches, munchkins, and sentient farming aids. With large wooden puppets and a beautiful set, Le Theatre de Marionette brings the tale of Dorothy and Oz to vivid life, immersing audiences in her adventures with the Scarecrow, Tinman, and Cowardly Lion. Controlled by puppeteers, the string-bound characters move like real actors or fake statues, reenacting the group’s quest to reach the Emerald City and vanquish the Wicked Witch of the West.
Geppetto's Theater & Workshop
“It all starts with an idea and block of wood,” says John Hopkins, founder of Geppetto's Theater & Workshop. While that may be true for his meticulously hand-carved marionettes—which star in the full gamut of classic children’s stories from Hansel and Gretel to The Wizard of Oz—it took a little more for Geppetto's Theater & Workshop itself. John began his performances in a defunct bus station in Arlington, drawing in families with just the skill of his hands and voice, before achieving enough success to move to Dallas and expand his skilled team of puppeteers and voice actors.
