You'd think after receiving not one but two "Citations of Excellence" from the Union Internionale de la Marionette, these guys would take a break. Luckily, for us puppet enthusiasts at PST and audiences alike, they don't.
In addition to performing in schools, museums, theaters, and festivals in and around their hometown, Richmond, VA, Applause Unlimited has toured up and down the entire east coast, making a few stops here and there, including: The Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA, The Puppet Co. Playhouse in Glen Echo, MD, The National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD, The Wetlands Institute in Cape May, NJ, and The Smithsonian Discovery Theatre in Washington D.C.
...And The Shows
Pretty impressive, right? Well, that's because Applause Unlimited offers a wide range of performances featuring fresh interpretations of classic tales like The Velveteen Rabbit, Peter and the Wolf, Puss in Boots, and The Tales of Beatrix Potter (due at PST this December). Using masks, music, and comedy, they entertain audiences as much as they educate 'em. So, in other words, they put the "fun" in "learning can be fun."
