A clownish maintenance crew finds a magical yellow bird, and a mad chase begins. Racing over land, across the sea, and through the air – battling pirates, monsters, and terrible pop songs – how far will our heroes go? Take a leap into a world of imagination, where birds are magic and everyday folks find friendship and love. Join Liars & Believers on an adventure of masks, puppets, live music, and gibberish – in collaboration with Luminati, led by the incomparable Johnny Blazes.

Yellow Bird Chase is accessible to Deaf and hard of hearing audiences, using innovative physicality and captioning throughout.

Join us for free puppetry workshop for kids after our matinees on May 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, and 21. Learn how anything you see can take on a life of its own!
