ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- What do puppets say when there are no children around? Henson Alternative's Stuffed and Unstrung answers that question with a hilarious performance.
Starring the Miskreant Puppets, this variety is brought to the Sunrise Theatre by six smart, funny puppeteers from the Jim Henson Company.
What makes the performance so great is that the puppeteers improvise songs and sketches based on the audience suggestions, so no show is the same twice.
The six puppeteers have at their fingertips -- literally -- 80 puppets in which to entertain.
It is stressed that this is an adult comedy show and is not for children.
The puppets have performed on a national stage when they were seen performing alongside Cee-Lo Green and Gwyneth Paltrow at the Grammys, and are soon scheduled to appear in their own feature length movie.
Henson Alternative's Stuffed and Unstrung will perform one night only, at 7 p.m. on April 17. Tickets start at $39. The Sunrise Theatre is located at 117 South Second Street in downtown Fort Pierce. For more information, call (772) 461-4775 or go online to www.sunrisetheatre.com.
