Puppet Nemo In Slumberland

I'll try to post something more significant later tonight, but I wanted to make sure I passed along this info about some puppet shows this month at the Cincinnati Art Museum...
Adventures in Slumberland
Using the magic and wonder of Black Light Theatre Madcap vividly brings to life Winsor McCay’s creation of a young boy’s adventures. From the Golden Age of newspaper comic strips and in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Little Nemo in Slumberland, Madcap creates the surreal landscape of the Kingdom of Slumberland that Little Nemo can explore only in his sleep. We meet the astonishing characters that made his adventures famous and follow little Nemo in his quest to reach the Princess.

Come live the wonders of Little Nemo's dreams as children around the world did a century ago. But reserve your seat soon! Adventures in Slumberland will leave Cincinnati at the end of December to tour the country!
It seems they already performed last weekend, but they have shows at 11:30 am and 1:30 pm on the 15th and 16th.

I've actually seen a few Madcap Puppets' shows and they generally entertaining. Not always my cup of tea, but certainly professionally done. More importantly, though, young kids really seem entertained by them and the puppeteers do a good job of dealing with the young ones.

If I can weasel it into my schedule, I'll try to attend just to see what they do with McCay's material.
