Beyond Puppets Who Kill a Hit in Hamilton Fringe

John Pattison’s one man show Beyond Puppets Who Kill was a hit at the Hamilton Fringe Festival this past week. Thanks to everyone who came out to see the show – which is still in its early development stages. John plans to remount it in a more fleshed out form in Toronto either later this year or early next year.

A big thanks to Luke Brown and his staff at Theatre Aquarius for all their help.

Here is a review of the show from THE VIEW Magazine in Hamilton:

I absolutely loved this show, and intend to go back for a second viewing. From “Fraggle Rock,” John Pattison shows off fantastic puppetry skills, plus his ventriloquism and characterizations are superb. Also, it was a warm fuzzy treat to hear a first–hand account of who Jim Henson really was. Pattison’s personal stories work perfectly as space between his hilarious, top–rate puppet sequences. Bravo. A joy.
