Weekend treat for kids: In the Heart of the Beast

  • Updated: May 11, 2012 - 2:07 PM

There are puppets, and then there are Heart of the Beast puppets. Inside an art deco former movie theater on Lake Street in Minneapolis, water, flour, newspaper and paint create gorgeous, haunting fantasy worlds populated by strange creatures, all of whom have a tale to tell. On Saturday mornings from October to March, take the little ones to a free puppet show, followed by hands-on make-and-take puppet workshops, based on that day's performance.
