World-famous Cashore Marionettes at BYU's Pardoe Theatre Sept. 23-25

The world-famous Cashore Marionettes will be performing at Brigham Young University Thursday through Saturday, Sept. 23-25, in the Pardoe Theatre.

Tickets are available through byuarts.com or by visiting the Fine Arts Ticket Office in the Harris Fine Arts Center or by calling (801) 422-4322. Tickets cost $6-8.

Thursday and Friday shows will feature “Life in Motion,” at 7:30 p.m. This show is recommended for patrons 12 and older. Saturday will feature “Simple Gifts” at noon and 2 p.m. This show is recommended for patrons 8 and older.

The shows will feature beautifully crafted marionettes in a series of scenes taken from everyday life and set to music by classical composers. The puppets take the audience on a journey that celebrates the richness of life.

In 1990, Joseph Cashore began showcasing his marionettes across North America, Europe and Asia. His shows have been described as “a wonderful world of breathtaking magic created by one man and his exquisite marionettes” by the Center for Puppetry Arts.

His moving and humorous performances have been presented across the nation in venues like the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Annenberg Center in Pennsylvania, the Kravis Center in Florida and many others.

Since 1990, Cashore has received many awards for his performances including grants and fellowships. He has also received the UNIMA Citation of Excellence, the highest honor an American puppeteer can receive.
