The Issue: New Musical on Social Acceptance

Anthropomorphic is a new musical that parallels the definition of anthropomorphism with the imposition of social standards, by using puppets that represent human-like insects and animals. A full orchestra and combined cast of human and puppet actors will explore the idea of imposing social standards on others. The story takes place between the moment of a gunshot and the main character’s acceptance of his own death and recognition that he is worthy of love.

The Campaign: Constructing a Puppet for the Musical

If this Grassroots campaign raises $280, then Puppetry Arts can build a puppet for its fall show, Anthropomorphic. Each additional $271 raised will fund the materials and labor to build another puppet. Artists from the LGBT community will build the puppets and perform the play in public workshops. Anthropomorphic aims to broaden the public’s access to musical theater, explore issues that local teens face on a daily basis, and reach out to LGBT audiences with special invitations for LGBT youth.
