Bonky Dolls/Instant Opera Company pops up at the PVD Fringe July 29!!!

On Friday, July 29, at 8:45pm and 9:45pm,  Bonky Dolls and the Instant Opera Company will perform its premiere production, The Haunting of Buzzards Bay, as a pop-up performance in the Fringe PVD 2016 festival.  Built for the culture*park 13th Short Play Marathon in November 2015, The Haunting presents the story of a 19th century whaler returning years later to his beloved New Bedford to find it irrevocably altered.  The show features story and shadow puppetry from David Higgins, story and vocals by Vanessa Gilbert, musical direction/viola accompaniment by Jeremy Fortier and all-around great manipulation by Stuart Window. 
To see the show, gather at Grants Block in Providence (the corner of Westminster and Union Streets) at showtime, and a performer will conduct you to the adjacent, indoor, venue.
