SYNOPSIS

Teenage Ruth has to endure the agony of both body horror and High School bullies in this satirical puppet-filled take on an urban legend.

Combining folklore, mythology, Lovecraftian monsters and pop-culture parody, Shadow Circus Creature Theatre has been one of San Francisco’s most popular and outrageous puppetry troupes since its formation in 2000. Using life-sized latex and foam creatures Shadow Circus creates a world that is utterly fantastic, and yet hilariously similar to our own.

The troupe was created by puppet-maker and ventriloquist Dave Haaz-Baroque, working with a variety of other puppeteers, actors, variety performers and musicians. Dave Haaz-Baroque’s creations have been featured on the Science Channel’s “Oddities: San Francisco”and make regular appearances around the Bay Area, including at the world famous Edwardian Ball and KOFY TV’s ‘Creepy KOFY Movie Time.” Dave is also a frequent collaborator with Kat Robichaud’s Misfit Cabaret; a theatrical variety show that performs in San Francisco, Seattle and Los Angeles.
