Comparable to participatory film experiences like The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Heather Henson’s Sing-Alongs provide family-friendly, raucous interactions with the classic films of Heather’s father, Jim Henson. The IBEX Puppetry Sing-Along crew brings elements of the films to life for the audience via puppetry, kiting, and shadow acting.
Labyrinth is a 1986 fantasy film directed by Jim Henson, produced by George Lucas, and based upon conceptual designs by Brian Froud. The film stars David Bowie as the Goblin King and Jennifer Connelly as a young girl who must conquer the Goblin King’s maze to rescue her brother from him.
The Sing-Along with Labyrinth experience provides the audience with flying babies, elegant kites, silly puppets, and hilarious shadow acting to create a tribute to the film that is half tongue-in-cheek and half sincere celebration of this cult classic young adult fantasy. Children and adults alike are urged to yell out famous lines, blow bubbles, dance in the aisles, and of course, sing along with the movies to forge new or renew connections to films from another generation.
