‘The People’s History’ uses student-made puppets

TERRE HAUTE — The Indiana State University theater department is performing “The People’s History” in association with Quest Theater Ensemble of Chicago.

Quest’s Andrew Park, who earned a bachelor’s degree in theater from Indiana State, is director of the production.  

Students enrolled in the theater department’s puppet-making class are creating puppets and other props for the upcoming production.

Each student created a large paper mache head representing a political or historical figure to be worn by actors in “The People’s History.” Instead of looking to realistic images of the figures, most students have designed the form of their heads from caricatures of the individuals, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and an astronaut, among others.

“The People’s History” will be performed March 21-24. The show is for mature audiences only due to profanity and sexual humor.

The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. each evening in the New Theater. Tickets may be reserved by calling (812) 237-3333.
