Puppet Up! — Uncensored

November 13, 2014

SF Sketchfest and Westbeth Entertainment present
Henson Alternative’s
Puppet Up! — Uncensored 

Brian Henson, Chairman of the Jim Henson Company and an award-winning director, writer, producer and puppeteer, will be performing at all performances of PUPPET UP! – UNCENSORED (formerly Stuffed & Unstrung), in which world-class Henson puppeteers are unleashed in this live, outrageous and very spontaneous show, featuring over 60 original Jim Henson puppets. Brian has worked creatively on countless productions including Labyrinth, Return to Oz, Farscape, The Muppets Take Manhattan, Muppet Treasure Island and many more.

This production delivers “two shows in one” as the hilarious puppet action is projected live on large screens flanking the stage, while the puppeteers race around below – displaying their skills in full view of the audience. The show also features a few recreations of classic pieces originally created by Jim Henson, Jane Henson, and Frank Oz that haven’t been seen by live audiences in decades. Each PUPPET UP! show is a unique experience due to its spontaneous nature – and each performance is different, showcasing the wit, technique, and that trademark Henson dryness and sly anarchy.
