July 09--WHAT -- Get ready to harmonize with Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang when the Garden Theatre stages "Sing Along with The Muppet Movie."
The production, by Heather Henson's IBEX Puppetry, will have two performances at the Winter Garden venue on July 27.
"Sing Along with The Muppet Movie" features family-friendly interaction with the classic films of Heather's legendary father, Jim Henson. The IBEX Puppetry Sing Along crew brings elements of the films to life for the audience via puppetry and shadow acting.
Children and adults alike are urged to yell out famous lines, blow bubbles, dance in the aisles, and of course, sing along with the movies.
"Sing Alongs allow me to connect with the work of my father," says director Heather Henson. "I can work with my dad's material. I can put a new spin on it but it's still his stuff, intact. And it gives me an opportunity to watch them over and over again!"
Audience members receive goodie bags with their ticket. The bags are filled with streamers, an ice cream cone shooter, a tiara, hand clappers, glow necklaces, bubble bottles, a butterfly fan, and other items to use throughout the show (and then take home).
WHEN: 3 and 7 p.m. Saturday, July 27. Choreographer Sunny Raskin will host the matinee; Henson will host the evening performance. Davey Rocker will co-host both shows.
WHERE: Garden Theatre, 160 W. Plant St., Winter Garden
TICKETS: $10 (includes goodie bag)
CALL: 407-877-4736, Ext. 0
