Puppeteers to attend Edinburgh festival

“Cthulhu: A Puppet Play,” performed last semester in the University Playhouse’s black box, was selected to be performed at the International Collegiate Theatre Festival (ICTF) during the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. A group of students will travel to Scotland in August to perform the show and recruit for the university. Based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft, the play explores the macabre relationship between Professor Derleth and the creature Cthulhu with human-sized puppets, an original score and multimedia elements. “It was a joy working with the actors and the crew and watching them grow as artists,” said writer, director and theatre department faculty member, Kelly Switzer.
