Utilizing a new and remarkably unusual staging concept, puppeteer David Simpich brings to the 2014 Holiday Season a brand new adaptation of Johanna Spyri’s beloved novel, Heidi. The play will be performed throughout the season in the Simpich Theatre.
Near the modest hut of the “Alm Uncle” nestled below the snowy Swiss Alps, the adventures of a young girl named Heidi begin. Her escapades with Peter and his lively herd of goats, the softening of her bitter grandfather’s heart, and the untimely circumstances that carry her far away to the crowded city of Frankfurt all climax in a memorable Christmas setting.
This is the first time in over twenty years, the hand-carved string puppets from his 1985 production will be performing on stage. “I have wanted for many years to completely revision this story as a solo production,” says Simpich. “It’s been great to unpack my old marionettes and bring them to life again in a new Christmas production.”
Seating is limited for Simpich Holiday productions and shows sell out well in advance. Ticket prices range from $13 to $15 and are available online at www.simpich.com and at Simpich Showcase Box Office: (719) 465-2492. Tickets are $12 for the five pre-Thanksgiving performances.
