ArtStarts At Rivermarket: Robin and the Timeless Forest with Runaway Moon Theatre

Robin and the Timeless Forest

By Maira Ramirez, Special Events Coordinator - We had the wonderful opportunity to host the team from Runaway Moon Theatre at ArtStarts at RiverMarket this October. Robin and the Timeless Forest is a great show that immediately captivated the audience with its unique stage set-up, special visuals and light effects. Throughout the show, the members both voiced and manipulated puppets and marionettes, engaging the crowds with their characters and creative storyline.
