Rosalita is getting ready for the winter/holiday season when she starts to daydream and is whisked away to a snowy land by a mystical bird. Trapped and frozen by the snow and cold, it will take true courage and kindness to save her from the naughty Ice Imp, and bring her home. Who will be able to help her... the dragon, the unicorn, or her pet kitty? In this 35-40 minute long marionette show, the audience will be able to give visual cues to the puppets to help them with their choices, and there will be a Q&A after. This show is open to large numbers, as the audience will be muted, but we encourage you to have your cameras on and actively participate!
Charlotte Anne Dore
Rosalita's Puppets is a touring puppet company based in Somerville MA. It was established in 1993 by actor/puppeteer Charlotte Anne Dore, who received a BA in Creative Arts from Nottingham Trent University in the UK. Charlotte builds the puppets, sets, and costumes, and also performs in the shows and creates original, inventive, and interactive presentations, delighting audiences of all ages. She presents one of a kind puppet shows using live sound rather than a recorded soundtrack, which allows for improvisation and adaptation, making no two shows the same. Each show is influenced by the audience's responses to questions, and encourages creative thinking and empowerment.
