Sci-Fi Double Feature

Sci-Fi-Double-FeatureInspired by action-adventure B-movies from the 1960s, Sci-Fi Double Feature is a magical collision of puppetry and film, scored with an original soundtrack. A true all-ages show, this one-of-a-kind performance features two fast-paced puppet shows captured live and simultaneously projected onto a big screen, linked by an original stop-motion animated film. Full of wit, anarchy and whimsy, Yukon-based Ramshackle Theatre provides a behind-the-scenes look at their clever puppetry, dynamic camera techniques and original sound effects to create an experience unlike any other.

This performance is presented in our intimate backstage studio space.
