After two years of modified show formats, 2022 welcomes the return of BareBones' traditional puppet pageant — an outdoor drama consisting of larger-than-life puppetry, stilting, dance, fire, song, and music.
The theme of the show is an exploration of growing larger to hold grief and creating our own mythologies utilizing images of bears, deer, and birds. It also explores the changing of the seasons and the connections between the living world, death, ancestors, and grief.
Friday, October 28 · Saturday, October 29 · Sunday, October 30 · Monday, October 31 7pm - 8pm
Advance Purchase Tickets
There are a limited number of advance purchase tickets, so get yours soon.
BareBones has historically allowed walk-up entry to its events. This year we will have a limited number of tickets available for walk-ups.
Why buy your ticket online in advance?
Early event entry, so you can get the spot of your choice (be closer to the action - the fire, the puppets, all the things!)
$20 per ticket (no one turned away for lack of funds)
The Saturday, October 29th, performance will have accessibility accommodations of audio description and ASL interpretation. There will also be an ADA path to ADA seating every night.
Historically, BareBones has asked for gate donations in lieu of charging for tickets. This year, however, due to reduced funding and limited audience capacity at our venue, we are ticketing the event. We hope you understand and can help this beloved tradition continue to survive and thrive!
Support the Show!
The Extravaganza is a community-created production. We have a number of public events throughout September and October, where volunteers can help make puppets or otherwise participate! You can also donate supplies needed to create puppets, costumes, and set pieces.
