Tucker's Robot

This hand puppet show was created in 2014 for Open Eye Figure Theatre's Driveway Tour program.  This program tours puppet shows in backyards around the twin cities in the summer to strengthen neighborhoods and build community.  I designed, built, and directed Tucker's Robot in 2014 with music by John Lucking.  In 2015 the script was revised by Joseph Evans.  The show has performed 80 times over the past two summers in the Twin Cities area.

"Tucker's Robot" is a story about a boy named Tucker who decides to build a robot with his best friend Todd.  Together Todd and Tucker discover the power of their own minds as they travel back in time to save their Robot from a neighborhood bully.  The show is 30 minutes in length and accompanied by live accordion.
