Event Notes


Incorporating beautifully handcrafted puppets and an original pop/rock musical score, Cementland comes to life as two enigmatic garbage collectors tell the story of a very special boy whose singular wish is to find a TREASURE!

One day, the boy discovers a rusty tin box packed with colorful envelopes and an old wrinkled note: "Put my wondrous riches into the earth and enjoy." The boy opens the envelope and tosses the contents -- "hundreds of tiny gray specks" -- onto the ground. Nothing happens! But night will come and the specks must be protected from junkyard thieves so the boy invents a guard by “gathering wet smelly socks, moldy old pillow stuffing and scraggly wire to bring his creation, Frog Belly Rat Bone, to life.” Find out what happens next in this delightful production suitable for all ages.
