Cashore Marionettes bring music-themed family show to Mondavi

By From page A9 | March 12, 2013

The Cashore Marionettes return to the Mondavi Center on March 15-17 with a family-oriented program titled “Simple Gifts,” a series of touching portrayals and poignant scenes from everyday life set to music by such composers as Vivaldi, Strauss, Beethoven and Copland.

Through a combination of virtuoso manipulation, beautiful music, theatrical illusion and artistic insight, the original vignettes presented in “Simple Gifts” explore a range of emotions with characters and actions that are lifelike and convincing.

Veteran artist Joseph Cashore has been designing, building and performing with his special marionettes for more than 30 years.

Performances are at 7 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 15-17, with 2 p.m. matinees on March 16 and 17 in the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre. Tickets are $35 general, $17.50 for students and children, available at www.mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787.
