From March 20th to April 18th, S.M.A.R.T. and Miniature Curiosa will present An Excruciatingly Ordinary Toy Theater Show every weekend at their new Toy Theater Parlor inside 1906 S. Flores. Enjoy libations, homemade popcorn, Paletas, Topo Chicos, and an original Toy Theater show just for you. Every evening is a totally new experience. Seating in the parlor is very limited, with audience sizes only reaching about 30. Advanced ticket purchases are highly recommended. Shows can also be scheduled for parties, business meetings, weddings, and whatever your heart desires by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

Synopsis: 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.
