Arm-of-the-Sea-Theater

On July 13, 2017, Lawson Lake welcomed back Arm-of-the-Sea Theater. This year's production was The Rejuvenary River Circus. Many youngsters enjoyed a free performance of this show. The play harnesses the power of mask and puppets to provoke interest and imagination to all the children watching the show.

It is an allegorical tale that follows Malakai the water carrier and messenger as he travels between Mountain Peaks and the Deep Blue Sea. Along his journey Malakai encounters a host of creatures, including a lyrical sea turtle, a fast-talking crow a pair of industrious beavers. Filter oysters and schools of migrating fish. When he falls ill, Rachel his granddaughter, is challenged to help restore her grandfather, and the river back to health.

Arm-of-the-Sea Theater's mission is to create works of theater that inspire wonder, provoke thought, give joy and enrich the public imagination. We strive for a theater of visual poetry–handmade & archetypal–imbued with the urgencies of Humanity and the elemental passages of Nature. We believe that such Theater is essential nutrition and should be available to people of many ages and walks of life. Thus, we present a majority of our performances free-to-the-public— in non-traditional spaces and at outdoor festivals.


Arm of the Sea 2016

On July 20, 2016, more than 200 youngsters enjoyed a free performance of "Hook, Line & Sinker: Fishing the Hudson River."

The play harnesses the power of mask and puppet theater to peer beneath the surface and explore the Hudson River’s varied identity.

The show was presented by Arm-of-the-Sea Theater on a perfect summer morning.
