Leap Day Puppet Cabaret at Jargon’s The Argot Room

February 29 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

An evening like no other!  Enjoy a fabulous 3-course dinner (with choices) by Chef Ryan Kline then be entertained by the creative imaginations of Keith Shubert and Lyon Hill!

Keith (aka Toybox) is a multiple award winning clown, puppeteer, toymaker, and event producer. Among his many awards are Fan Favorite and Best Performance at The National Puppetry Festival, Funding by The Jim Henson Foundation, and an UNIMA Citation for Excellence in The Art of Puppetry, the highest honor given in the field. Toybox’s performance is an inexplicable blend of clowning, storytelling, stand up comedy and puppetry.

Special guest Lyon Forrest Hill is the artistic director of The Columbia Marionette theater and is widely known in the puppetry community as an innovator. A lifelong purveyor of puppetry, comics, animation, and toys; Lyon synthesizes his interests into a unique type of performance that is heavy on atmosphere and detailed imagery. At the heart of his work, though, are hopeful and earnest ideas. Lyon will be performing a selection of short works developed for mature audiences that feature a variety of styles; including marionettes, shadows, and some inventive new techniques. He enjoys sharing the stage with his good friend, ToyBox. While their work is very different, they are in many ways two sides to the same coin.
