Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre's 2012 season included three exciting new productions, and a series of performances in New York's five boroughs.  CAMT also performed at the Czech Embassy in Washington, DC, and participated in the festival celebrating the reopening of the National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In addition, director Vit Horejs received the prestigious New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship.

Our newest play, King Executioner, will have a world premiere on March 21, 2013 at the Theater for the New City in NYC, and will run for three weeks. The play is inspired by the World War II love story by Polish magic realist? Tadeusz Nowak. The production will have a cast of 7 actors, 3 musicians and 60 marionettes, and will feature set design by Tom Lee, marionettes by Jakub “Kuba” Krejci and original music by Frank London

Rehearsals begin in January 2013. But we need your help to bring the play to the stage. Help us to raise $2500 toward the total budget of $49,100!

Risks and challenges

We are currently searching for four new performer/puppeteers who can sing and play musical instruments. Although all the financing is not secured, we will begin our rehearsals in January with our wonderful core company members, the new performers, and a creative dream team, composer Frank London of the Klezmatics, set and costume designer Theresa Linnihan, lighting designer Federico Restrepo, and puppet designer Kuba Krejci. The creative team has worked together on several projects in the past and are eager to get started!
