SIDNEY — Aiden Legend, only child, is making funny faces into a mirror when it falls and breaks, accidentally propelling Aiden’s mirror image into the real world. Is there room in our world for two Aiden Legends? Can Aiden get the Accidental Twin back into the mirror!? Gateway Arts Council is proud to bring the children’s production, “Twice Upon A Time,” to Shelby County on Feb. 1, 2020, at 11:15 a.m. at the Cameo Theater in Sidney, Ohio.

Before the play, a workshop beginning at 10 a.m. will be led by Madcap personnel, Children will create their own puppet masterpieces. Children wil; never know what Madcap puppets they’ll encounter. This is for children only.

Madcap Productions Puppet Theatre was founded in Cincinnati in 1981 by the late Jerry Handorf and Beth Kattelman. Since the beginning, they have been firmly rooted in the art of professional puppet theatre, children’s literature and world cultures. They are nationally recognized for engaging and original children’s theatre productions, as well as in-school educational programs that include performances, workshops and residencies.

Madcap quickly built a repertoire of comic and original fairytale performances, touring up to six ensembles concurrently to schools, community centers, art museums and libraries. Classic stories such as The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and others were adapted for Madcap’s giant puppets and expressive hand-in-mouth characters.
