District of Cabaret! June 5th!

Do you ever miss the days when you would get your local news from singing Renaissance minstrels instead of CNN?

Do you ever watch old Marx Brothers movies and think, "They don't make 'em like that anymore"?

Do you ever wake in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, wondering when Puppet Underground will stop serving spaghetti?

If you answered "Yes" or "No" or "Maybe" to any of those questions, then you're in luck!! Because Puppet Underground proudly presents our very first...

A cabaret all about DC with all DC artists!

WHEN: Friday, June 5th at 7pm
(Doors open at 6:30pm! Show starts promptly at 7!)

WHERE: St. Stephen's Church (in the auditorium)
1525 Newton St NW

SUGGESTED DONATION: $5 - $10 sliding scale

What you'll see!

Puppet Underground is honored to bring together so many fabulous DC performers including Quique Aviles, Anu Yadav and more!

We will have excerpts from Classlines, a new multi-media theatre project exploring issues of class in the DC Metro Area.

We also welcome ONE DC's (Organizing Neighborhood Equity DC) "Weaving Shared Visions", a digital storytelling project exploring multi-ethnic organizing.
