Ronnie Burkett’s The Loony Bin is an intimate “adults only” salon-style handpuppet show featuring a crazy cast of characters in an improvised mash-up of scenes, songs and silliness. Set in a tattered puppet booth, the evening introduces us to leading lady Vealma Abattoir, once famous as the cow who jumped over the moon. She is joined by a company of faded players, her mysterious staff, and beloved characters from past Burkett shows including the wistful fairy Schnitzel, has-been actress Esmé Massengill, and beloved prairie matron Mrs. Edna Rural.

The Loony Bin has been Ronnie’s small personal pandemic project while locked in his studio and Puppets Up! will be the premiere performance. Only 90 tickets are available, and the price includes complimentary wine and treats.
