Spring is bringing many renewing changes to the PIP. The Puppet Improv Project is stepping into the arena of scripted theater with "Trash", a musical. In our show, a neighborhood compost heap feeds off city's thoughtless waste and morphs into a monster trash heap. Only when city learns "Don't Feed The Heap" do they regain control of their city and can rescue its citizens. The show marks a milestone in the company's development as it will be the first show we have produced using improv to create a scripted story. The use of a script opens up a whole new world of puppet technology. Using a script gives us the skeleton we need to design and build the custom puppets needed to create a world where objects have life beyond what we give them.
