Taking a bath will never be the same for audiences after the all-new The Amazing Cow Boat!
Told through a giant pop-up book with puppets, songs, and surprises, the show is the story of Charlie who, while taking a bath, sails away in his imagination in search of treasure.
Mounds Park is one of the venues hosting a puppet show as part of the Open Eye Figure Theatre’s 10th annual Driveway Tour. On Monday, August 8 at 7:00 pm, the Mounds Park Pavilion at Earl St. and Mounds Blvd will be staging the puppet show The Amazing Cow Boat. The event is scheduled rain or shine.
The Driveway Tour brings original, family-friendly theater directly into neighborhoods, developing grassroots community involvement by way of an economically accessible theatrical event. Since 2003, the Driveway Tour has reached 33,000 people in more than 450 neighborhoods. All Driveway Tour performances are free and open to the public.
The Driveway Tour is funded by grants and donations, and the troupe performs in over 70 backyards, driveways, and parks during the summer. The Driveway Tour’s mission is to entertain and delight through the puppet show events and bring together neighbors and friends to create community. For more information, please visit www.-openeyetheatre.org.
This original show is appropriate for all ages, even adults, and runs about 30 minutes. Although the event is free, they will be passing a hat to support the tour. Donations are gratefully accepted to help support this small theatre company.
The event in Mounds Parks is sponsored by ECFE and Friends of Mounds Park (friendsofmoundspark.org).
