Zach Dorn weaves lost journal entries into peculiar tales by manipulating digital cameras through toy-sized streets filled with paper puppets. A lonely puppeteer stalks the child of two notorious celebrities, a three-foot ghost plagues an eight-year-old boy’s fragile psyche, and an opera-singing landlord refuses to return a security deposit. These stories and more explode onto the stage in this modern exploration into Toy Theater.  The creation of this work was made possible in part by the Alan Beckstead Award for Original Production from the Artist Foundation of San Antonio and a Seed Award from The Jim Henson Foundation.
