The Crapstall Street Boys: A Trouble Puppet Show
Salvage Vanguard Theater
Austin , TX
Share this event:

Mister and Missus can't help thinking that if only they didn't have the expense of clothing and feeding You Lad, they could afford the Household Weapon for Monster Defense. Then they hit upon a brilliant solution that gets the boy off their hands, brings in the money for the Household WMD, and ultimately brings about the realization of their worst nightmare.

A darkly funny, post-industrial Dickensian fable, Crapstall Street Boys is a completely original work by the company who brought Austin award-winning productions of The Jungle, Frankenstein, Riddley Walker, The Cruel Circus, and most recently The Head (featured in two of the Chronicle's Top-10 lists for 2013!).

Artistic Director: Connor Hopkins
Composer: Justin Sherburn
lighting by Stephen Pruitt
sound design by K. Eliot Haynes
costume design by Lucie Cunningham
graphic design by Chris Owen

Performers: Jose Villarreal, Noel Gaulin, Travis Bedard, Nathan Lahay, Elyce Lahay, Caroline Reck, Gricelda Silva, and Dallas Tate

The Crapstall Street Boys, created by Trouble Puppet's Artistic Director, Connor Hopkins, was originally part of Frontera Fest's 2011 Long Fringe. We are remounting it in much fuller glory this season.

ASL interpretation offered on selected nights. Group sales welcome. Director/cast talkbacks available for groups of five or more.

**Though made by TPT for grownups, this show will engage anyone mature enough to sit through a feature-length production (approx 1.25 hours). There is a fair amount of  grotesquerie (puppet fights, decapitations, monsters, etc.), of course.**

Trouble Puppet Theater Company: Founded in 2004, Trouble Puppet is dedicated to the creation of exceptional works of puppet theater, to the promotion of the art of puppetry, and to the support of its practitioners. Trouble Puppet is a sponsored project of Salvage Vanguard Theater.  This project is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department/Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin's future.  Visit Austin at
