In the Heart of the Beast's New Show!

In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre's new show, Beneath the Surface, opens this Tuesday, February 19th and runs through March 16th. Beneath the Surface is episode #2 of a 3-part performance series which explores the issues surrounding water quality, quantity, and ownership. In addition to performances, each episode also includes a hands-on "lab"of practical actions and questions (in this episode, it takes the form of a "What You Can Do!" carnival), and ideas for community advocacy.

This show is a great way to introduce children to the issues facing our world about water, but if it is anything like the first episode, I can say from personal experience that people of all ages will be entertained and take new knowledge and fresh inspiration away from it.

And if you're not already sold, this is from the HOBT website:
