Several pieces will feature puppets and masks created by Daniel Potter from the Mystic Paper Beasts.
Artreach, Incorporated Executive Director Becca Atkins is excited about the holiday show, “Everyone has enjoyed Kato’s creative process, from the writing classes in the early stages, to the theater games for increasing body awareness, to the rehearsals that began in October. The show is a delightful mash-up of pieces – funny, poignant, visually stimulating – I can’t wait for people to experience it.”
All for Your Delight is an evening designed to dazzle the eye, engage the ear, and chase away the winter blues. The holiday show has become a staple offering that provides laughter and community during a season that can be overwhelming or otherwise stressful for people that may not have access to a strong support system of family or friends.
