Open: / / - Close: Open Run STANDARD TOYKRAFT'S CARDBOARD ROBOT BATTLE, EPISODE V, DISNEY BUYS THE FRANCHISE
A UNIQUE PUPPETRY EVENT
9 Contestants will build their own robot out of cardboard and packing tape. These are the only materials allowed!! They should paint and decorate their robots, but more importantly they create cardboard killing machines.

Robots should be of "vehicle" design, similar to the Mars Rover or other type machines. Contestants are not allowed to create humanoid robot costumes. No Robocops here! This will give an unfair advantage, and be more akin to the human sport known as "boxing".

The Cardbot Battle would not be complete without our celeb host, Ring Fembots, Inter-match shows, drink specials and so much more!


How does this crazy thing work?
2 Robots will enter the ring based on a "heavy weight- light weight" system. The winners will then proceed to a Battle Royal Round where all the champions will battle one another.

Open: 09/19/16- Close: 12/11/16 That Golden Girls Show! - A Puppet Parody
Set in that sassy Miami house in 1985, 'That Golden Girls Show!' is a brand new show that parodies classic Golden Girls moments - with puppets! Get set for an evening of cheesecake, laughter, jazzercise, shoulder pads, sex, and the elegant art of the quick-witted put down. 

From Sophia's get-rich-quick schemes, to Rose's tales from St Olaf, Blanche's insatiable hunt for men and the Fountain of Youth, to Dorothy's daily struggle to make sense of her life, manage her roommates all the while fending off a certain, pesky ex-husband, once and for all. Devoted fans will fondly remember our four girls from Miami, and for the first-timers, this will be a joyful introduction to the brilliance of that television series.

Open: / / - Close: Open Run The Captives
The plot of The Captives is a very funny comedy, based on confusion of identity, set among war in the ancient world, and dealing with slavery and loyalty. 

Hegio's son, Philopolemus, has been captured in war by the Elians. Similarly, Philocrates, an Elian, has been captured by The Aetolians. Hegio, himself an Aetolian, buys Philocrates and his slave Tyndarus in an auction. His plan is to trade the two for his son, his only loss being the money he has spent to purchase them. Tyndarus and Philocrates devise a scheme where they will switch roles and names, so that the latter might arrive home sooner and better facilitate the exchange of Hegio's son. Hegio, unknowingly, agrees to send the disguised Philocrates to Elis. What Tyndarus does not count on is Aristophontes, another Elian prisoner and friend of Philocrates who he is familiar with.

Open: 09/30/16- Close: 10/02/16 WILD CHILD IN THE CITY
Tjasa Ferme combines her European sensibility and Kafka-esque sense of irony with down-to-earth toughness of a New York single girl who has seen it all. It is a story so unbelievable, twisted, and smelly that it must be true. The writer-performer recalls the top 10 experiences that occurred in her roughly 25 different rented apartments in New York. In the first scenario, as reported by WABC’s Eyewitness News, an intruder claims to be Tjasa’s boyfriend. In another, a subletter turns out to be a relapsed heroin addict who, in one of his fits, smears the walls with his own feces. Part dark comedy, part rant with a strong feminist twist, part immersive theater experience, WILD CHILD IN THE CITY proves with grit and wit that in New York City, the truth is often much stranger than fiction.
