What's Happening



The Wars of Heaven: Part I


April 30—May 17
Thursday—Saturday, 8pm Sundays, 6pm
Salvage Vanguard Theater


Tickets: $12-20, available online


Group sales welcome. Director/cast talkbacks available for groups of five or more.

Angels and demons are among us, serving God and Lucifer, fighting in our wars, upholding an ancient order. What happens when some of them begin to doubt the rules?

Part I of Trouble Puppet's epic three-part tale is a spectacular Miltonic saga, told through tabletop and shadow puppetry. (Parts II and III are to come in 2016 and 2017. Each show stands alone as a complete dramatic work.)

The show is created by the company (winner of a dozen B. Iden Payne Awards and a mainstay of Chronicle Top-10 lists) that brought Austin award-winning productions of The Jungle, Frankenstein, Riddley Walker, Toil and Trouble, The Cruel Circus, The Head, The Crapstall Street Boys, and Hyde & Jekyll.

Artistic Director: Connor Hopkins
Composer: Justin Sherburn with the voices of Convergence, conducted by Brent Baldwin
Sound design by K. Eliot Haynes
Media by Chris Owen
Performers: Noel Gaulin, Travis Bedard, Gricelda Silva, Parker Dority, Zac Crofford, Katy Taylor, Ellie McBride, and Julie Moore

Celebrate Mother's Day at the show! Mothers and sons/daughters who come together receive free drinks Thursday–Sunday of Mother's Day weekend!

ASL interpretation offered May 17th.

**Not created for children. Contains cursing and violence (war). Probably OK for ages 13+.**
