Using masks and puppets to create a magical, cartoon-like world inside of a biodome, Flight of Fancy spins a tale of wonder when a puffin and a girl become unlikely friends and break loose into a night of adventure.

Performed by Public Works’ Artistic Director Sondra Blanchard and Claire Patton and directed by Meghan Frank, this show for all ages features a “full mask” style in which the actors do not speak, but express themselves with physical movement, as well as puppetry and a lush sound score.

The show premieres with two weekends of shows in Lafayette followed by a weekend of shows in Longmont:

“Epic and Hilarious!” – S.F., Lafayette audience member.

“I would say that audiences are going to find both a humor and a poetry that is really genuine and vulnerable … Being a clown is more of a stripping away than a putting on of something.” – Director Claire Patton, quoted in the Daily Camera.
