The Department of Theatre presents Fanto: A Mysterious Vaudeville, featuring newborn puppets and misled clowns. A curious variety show starring inanimate objects (from dancing tubes to lusty packing tape), Fanto uses theatrical illusion in ten original acts ranging from the spooky to the sublime. Conceived by faculty director Colette Searls, Fanto also features commissioned puppets by artist Don Becker.
