Filled with the larger-than-life magical realism of a Tim Burton film or Gabriel García Márquez novel, performances by the Hudson Valley-based traveling mask and puppet theater troupe have been amazing audiences for 20 years. Their large-scale hybrid performances of visual arts and music create an atmosphere of strangeness and wonder that the whole family can enjoy. On August 23 through 25, Arm-of-the-Sea Theater presents its annual outdoor performance spectacle, "The Esopus Creek Puppet Suite," at Saugerties's Tina Chorvas Waterfront Park. This year's production, "A Bend in the Crick of Time—True Tall Tales from Olde Saugerties," focuses on the town's heritage, featuring historical Saugerties characters, like farming families, Civil War draft dodgers, paper mill workers, steamboat captains, and wandering poets. (845) 246-7873.
