CAPE COD PUPPET GAM 2014

Whalers who met on the high seas held a gam to tell their lively tales. This summer, watch as three imaginative puppet companies tell their adventurous tales at the Cape Cod Puppet Gam, held on five Tuesday afternoons in Falmouth.

 

The shows will be presented at 4pm at John Wesley United Methodist Church, Gifford Street & Jones Road, from July 8 to August 5 and are best for ages 3 and up. Tickets will be sold for $8 at the door.

 

The “Cape Cod Puppet Gam” series is produced by Falmouth’s own “Dream Tale Puppets, ” a troupe founded by Jacek Zuzanski in 2003. The ensemble relishes the chance to share the adventure of wandering through lands of enchantment, mystery, humor and joy with Cape audiences.

 

The “Cape Cod Puppet Gam” is presented with the generous support of John Wesley United Methodist Church, the Cape Cod Children’s Museum, and friends of Dream Tale Puppets. Also, the series is supported in part by a grant from Falmouth Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
