Reverse Cascade in Baltimore

Creative Alliance has a puppet show coming up that we think you would be interested in! Through music and object puppetry, Reverse Cascade tells a story about the remarkable life of Judy Finelli, a renowned juggler and circus performer whose life changed completely after she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

Reverse Cascade was created by Baltimore puppeteer Anna Fitzgerald and is performed by puppeteers Emily Hall, Sophie Hinderberger, Sarah Nolen, Jeanine Padgett, Anna Fitzgerald, and Moira Horowitz. For this performance, a live musical score will be provided by Baltimore based multi-instrumentalist ellen cherry.

Join us for an amazing program of DC and Baltimore puppeteers performing original short puppet works for kids roughly 2 – 9 years old.

We will have shows at 1:00 and 3:00. We will add a show at 4:30pm if the early shows sell out.

The shows will be at BloomBars, our wonderful community art center in Columbia Heights. Bloombars is at 3222 11th St NW, 20010, near the Columbia Heights metro station.

This puppet hour will be different from our other ones in that you will need to buy tickets in advance. BloomBars is smaller than our usual location, so it is very likely that the shows will sell out.

Tickets can be bought through Brown Paper Tickets:

Tickets are $8 per person – plus a $1 fee to Brown Paper Tickets.

Half of the admission price will go to help support BloomBars. The other half will go to our performers to thank them for all of the time, work, and creativity they are bringing to this event.


Speaking of performers, here is our incredible line-up!

•Straight from the Amazing Life Games preschool, DC’s own Ollie and Elana Puppet Company will present their shadow projector show “The Bad Guy Broke the Bathtub”, a thrilling tale of ninjas, dragons, and bathtubs!

•Down from Baltimore we have Kevin Sherry presenting his crankie “The Frog and the Butterfly”. Along with being a performer of hilarious puppet shows for kids and adults, Kevin is also the author and illustrator of many children’s picture books including “I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean”, “I’m the Scariest Thing in the Castle”, and the hilarious chapter books series “The Yeti Files”.

•Also from Baltimore we have renowned artist and puppeteer Dirk Joseph keeping it in the family with his daughters Sequoia and Azaria as String Theory. They will present the puppet interview show “Kitty’s Corner”.

•It keeps on coming! Washington native Schroeder Cherry is bringing some of his famous hand-and-rod puppets out to sing the blues. Schroeder and his puppets have performed in schools, libraries and art centers all across America.

•And, finally, Dave “Mister Dave” Greenfieldboyce will perform his poignant, yet hopeful, puppet tale “The Reluctant Acorn”.

So come out and join your friends, your neighbors, and your community at BloomBars on Sunday, February 28th, for the Mount Pleasant Children’s Puppet Hour!
