Le Cabaret De Marionettes, April 26th & 27th 2024

Le Cabaret de Marionettes is an exciting and elegant blend of sideshow, circus, and the art of puppetry. Tickets are on sale now. You can Reserve Tickets Here or call 602-262-2050. Ages 18+

PHOENIX, Ariz. – (Feb. 23, 2024) This upcoming April, Great Arizona Puppet (GAPT) will be hosting their original production of Le Cabaret de Marionettes, in addition to resident puppeteers of the theater; we are excited to include two invited artists to join the cast. Joining as guest performer Crystal Cruz, or “Madame C” from Phoenix, Arizona, and Los Angeles, Matthew Scott of Rasputin’s Marionettes. Two shows will occur on Friday, April 26th, and Saturday, April 27th, starting at 8:00pm. Both shows will be 18+.

Le Cabaret de Marionettes is an “exciting and elegant” blend of sideshow, circus, and the art of puppetry. This is not the first show like this put on at GAPT; in July 2022, they hosted Le Cabaret de Poupees, a sold-out event that combined live music, dance, and the art of puppetry.

Crystal Cruz is a sideshow, burlesque, and circus artist. She has been described as “a beloved figure in the local entertainment scene” with “a magnetic stage presence and a penchant for pushing the boundaries of performance art. Her performances are a mesmerizing fusion of daring feats, sultry dance, and a touch of the surreal, leaving spectators in awe and clamoring for more.”

Matthew Scott performs regularly as a variety act, whether a sideshow, burlesque, vaudeville, or variety show. Trick puppets have become one of his specialties. His puppets “juggle, play instruments, and even do a striptease.” Because his niche is adult audiences, he has much more allowance to play ribald humor for an edgy audience. He is passionate about giving his audience the experience of something “so delightful and magical, albeit outrageous, that they hope they will remember that puppetry can break boundaries.”

Tickets for Le Cabaret de Marionettes are $30 for general admission and $45 for VIP. VIPs include early entry, one pre-show beverage, appetizers, and preferred table seating.
