Page Series presents puppet show about water Oct. 23 at Saint Mary’s

WINONA, Minn. — Large, colorful puppets will explore and explain the world’s water issues at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 23, at Saint Mary’s University’s Page Theatre.

Since 1973, In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre (HOBT) has been using water, flour, newspaper, paint and unlimited imagination to tell stories that explore the struggles and celebrations of human existence.

Drawing inspiration from the world’s traditions of puppet and mask theatre and its lively roots in transformative ritual and street theatre, HOBT creates vital, poetic theater for all ages and backgrounds.

“Beneath The Surface” is a splashy celebration and investigation of our everyday drinking water. This enlightening and entertaining production features live performances, music and video. A “What You Can Do!” carnival will engage and inspire all ages. Using fun, energy and imagination, children will be introduced to the issues that face our world about water.

Come to the theatre lobby early and take a blind taste test of drinking waters.

Tickets for this Page Series performance are $12 for adults and $5 for seniors and students and are available at the SMU Box Office, (507) 457-1715, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays or online at
