The Ghastly Dreadfuls
Center for Puppetry Arts
through October 30, 2021
BACK AGAIN! The Ghastly Dreadfuls, which was created by Jon Ludwig and Jason Hines, returned to the Center for Puppetry Arts in time for All Hallow’s Eve and a jolly good time for all. This one is for the more-or-less adults among us, and they say you should be old enough to buy booze if you wish to attend.
The Dreadfuls are made up by Scott DePoy, Kristin Haverty, Jason Hines, Jon Ludwig, Spencer G. Stephens and Reay Kaplan. With a live music under direction of Robert Strickland. The actors/puppeteers go live on stage, and each of them handling roles in 16 skits featuring great puppetry, classic costumes, high stepping dancing, and wanna-sing-along musical numbers.
You may think that puppets are just for kids; and while the youngsters do enjoy visiting this Atlanta theatre and museum; this is one that is playing to full houses of adults and every one of them in the audience leaves having had a really enjoyable break from the political BS and Covid daily news.
So, don’t be afraid to try something different and maybe just a bit eerie. When selecting seats, the better views are from rows C or higher, as some action takes place over the puppet set. Normal Covid protocols are followed so bring your CDC card and a mask. After all you might look less scary with it in. You can read more and see times and tickets at puppet.org and buy online or by phone.
