Trouble Puppet Theater Company, in collaboration with Mother Falcon, presents American Blood Song: A Puppet Operetta of The Donner Party. This tale of the Donner Party is rife with the privilege, entitlement, and hubris that leads to nation building, and sometimes cannibalism.

Performed by Zac Crofford, Caroline Reck, Marina DeYoe-Pedraza, Indigo Real, Jay Young, Zac Carr, and Melissa Vogt, this elaborately staged theatrical exploration of a pivotal moment in history features precise and expressive puppetry, singing, live music, media integration, and an original score by Austin’s celebrated orchestral band, Mother Falcon.
