Waltz - a Puppet Show

Don Tucker


Waltz, an original puppet show written, designed, and directed by Don Tucker as his Theater Studies senior distinction project, explores themes of the strength of human imagination, memory and reality, hope and survival. In Waltz, a terminally ill child retreats into a world of his own creation in order to cope with his frightening experiences in a hospital ward. Guided by a trio of puppeteers, the audience is invited into a surreal world where the lines between hospital and dream, reality and cartoon are blurred. Waltz ran March 21-23 in East Duke 209.
