Mark Twain's Riverboat Extravaganza!

Performance Dates

Director Devin Mahoney leads a six-performer ensemble through five classic American tall tales, using Pointless' singular blend of puppets, dance, music, and theatre to take the audience through America's history as seen in its tall tales, from post-revolutionary world of Washington Irving's “Rip van Winkle” to the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. The puppets and set by Matt Reckeweg and Patti Kalil ground the show in both timeless Americana and turn-of-the-century vaudeville. “Mark Twain's Riverboat Extravaganza” is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience for audiences of all ages, and Pointless is thrilled to be able to present it again for audiences who missed the original Fringe run and those who want to take another wild trip through American history.
