The Annual Ithaca Crankie Cabaret
Lilypad Puppet Theatre produces an annual Crankie Cabaret in November. We bring together artists, puppeteers, storytellers and musicians for this fabulous weekend of crankies! The next Crankie Cabaret will be November 7-10 2019!
See what we’ve been up to in the last few years:
What is a crankie? “A crankie is an old storytelling art form. It’s a long illustrated scroll that is wound onto two spools. The spools are loaded into a box which has a viewing screen. The scroll is hand-cranked while the story is told. It can be accompanied by a narrative, song or tune.”
