Open Eye Figure Theatre's Annual Holiday Pageant Features Assistant Professor Michael Sommers's Inventive Puppetry
Open Eye Figure Theatre presents its annual Holiday Pageant Wednesday, December 2, 2009 - Wednesday, December 23, 2009. According to Jay Gabler, the pageant began 24 years ago just a few blocks from Open Eye's storefront theater, in the living room of company founders U of M Theatre Arts and Dance Assistant Professor Michael Sommers and Susan Haas. In recent years, the show has happened only once annually, at the Pantages Theatre. However, this year, Open Eye is staging a three-week run in its own space.
