Haunted puppet show on Friday

If you want to get your Halloween started early, why not check out a haunted puppet show? Puppet Underground is putting on a "Haunted Halloween Cabaret" at St. Stephen's Church (1525 Newton) at 7 pm, which will have a number of different shows from different puppet troupes:
"The Only Good Corporation is an Undead Corporation" by RPM Puppet Conspiracy brings you corporate America. It's alive and endowed with the rights of humanity, but can it also get the flu? Chicken pox? Zombie virus? Watch as capital invests in its own infection!

--"A Matter of Life and Death" a new show from the Possibilitarian Puppet Theater in which Death dances, drums and plays the fiddle and Life shuffles and sings on. Mr Nobody has trouble finding a reason to live until The Boogey Man finds it for him.

--"Two Local Tales of Terror" by the Shadow Senators is a shadow puppet show about the curse of the Hope Diamond and the legend of DC, the Demon Cat who haunts the Capitol Building.

--"The Washington Tragedy" A puppet melodrama about a true-life scandal full of murder and intrigue from pre-Civil War days in the District by Puppet Underground.

--"The Girl in the Glass" A young girl meets an unexpected friend in this spooky show by Greenfield Greetings with musical accompaniment by Tunan Chews.
There's a $5-$10 suggested donation and it's for kids and adults. There's also a Sunday show in Georgetown.
