Le Chef brought our 5 year old up on stage — TWICE! Our little boy loved it and has excitedly told us a number of times since “I was on stage!” This is a very funny show and a must see for anyone from 5 to 95!

My sides really did hurt from laughing... both at the performance as well as the outrageous reaction of the kids!

I don’t know which was more entertaining - watching the performance, which was hilarious, or watching the children react to it.

Interactive, comedic puppet troupe coming to Rylander July 2, 2011 Keven Gilbert AMERICUS — On July 18, the Rylander Theatre will present “Z Puppets Rosenschnoz,” a puppeteering clown troop from Minnesota. Rylander director Heather Stanley said in a phone interview Friday that Shari Aronson and Chris Griffith from Z Puppets will perform at the theater following a week-long residency at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta. At 10 a.m. Monday, Aronson and Griffith will present the “Secret Life of Puppets” workshop which will teach participants the “tricks to turning sticks, cloth, strings and even your hands into live characters.” The workshop is intended for ages three and up. The group will participate in individual and group puppet improvisation and learn movement exercises that mechanize puppet's breath, gestures, actions and reactions. Stanley says registration for the workshop is $10 and is limited to 30 participants. In addition, registration to workshop includes a ticket to the evening Z Puppets Rosenschnoz Show. At 7 p.m. Aronson and Griffith will perform the full length “A La Carte: In a Fool’s Kitchen,” a comic battle between a fake French chef and a mischievous and rebellious lobster set to live accordion music. Stanley says that the “highly physical” Z Puppets Rosenschnoz shows are immensely entertaining and are fun for all ages. “It’s not just for kids and you don’t have to have a kid in tow,” Stanley said. She described the troupe as typical of the European notion of clowning with much improvisation, miming and slapstick. “We are excited to have a show like this in the summer,” she added. Stanley said that the Z Puppets Rosenschnoz show is unlike anything that the Rylander has featured in quite a while. She hopes that this kind of programming in the summer months provides opportunities for families to come and enjoy an evening at the Rylander. “This is going to be a good all-around family activity,” she said. Tickets are General Admission — $15/adults, $10/children. Workshop participants ticket to the 7 p.m. performance is included with workshop registration.
