May Newsletter


Holy cow, it's already May! Things are moving right along here at Red Yarn Productions--making progress on my new album, The Deep Woods, enjoying all my shows and the sweet families who come out each week, and leading several school residencies and afterschool classes. 

In other news, Red Yarn has finally entered the 21st century: you can now follow my adventures on Twitter and Instagram, in addition to Facebook. I still need a better website--if you or anyone you know is a web designer, please contact me!

Here are my special events and regular show schedules this month:

Special Shows:
Saturday, May 18
10:30am-4pm (I perform from 12-12:45). $5/person.
I'm honored to be a part of this event organized by the Columbia Association of Puppeteers. I'll be performing my "Deep Woods" show. Other performers include Tears of Joy Theater and Dragon Theater Puppets. Visit the webpage for more info. 

Sunday, May 19
6-8pm. $7/person.
Yessss! I'm opening for the amazing Mo Phillips and his full band at this very special show. I perform for ~30 minutes starting at 6pm. Tickets are only available at the door, so you should show up early

Saturday, June 1
2:30-3:15pm. Free!
In this musical puppet show, Red Yarn will lead audiences into the Deep Woods, a magical forest inhabited by the animals of American folklore. Mixing live musical performance with puppetry and interactive storytelling, this program engages children with the songs and stories of our national heritage.

Regular Shows:

Tuesdays from 10:30-11am
$3/walking person--No show on May 21

1st, 3rd & 5th Wednesdays from 10:30-11:15am
$3/walking person

2nd & 4th Wednesdays from 10-10:45am
$5/family

Most Thursdays from 10-10:45am
$5/child (adults are free)--No show on May 9

Fridays from 10-10:45am
$5/family--No show on May 10

A reminder: due to a busy schedule of out-of-town shows and summer camps, my regular shows will go on hiatus after the first week of June and resume in September. Don't worry, I'll be performing local shows throughout the summer. I'm also leading summer day camps for school age kids at Friendly House and KCLC; check out my April newsletter for more info.

Whew! Thanks for all your ongoing support. I hope to see you and your family soon!

Best,
Andy Furgeson
