Okay, Seattle wins the prize for the oddest sci-related Christmas event this year. For there, Cafe Nordo’s Culinarium (not Cafe Nerdo?) will be offering a four-course festive feast accompanied by a sci-fi shadow puppet show. According to the official bumpf: “Why? Why? Why are killer robots from the future trying to ruin Christmas? From the off-kilter mind of playwright and puppeteer Scot Augustson (aka, Sgt Rigsby) and the renowned and whimsical kitchens of Cafe Nordo comes the holiday show you were least expecting. It’s Science Fiction! It’s a heart-warming holiday tale! It’s a tantalising feast! It’s Terminator meets Santa Claus is Coming to Town.
“Sgt Rigsby evokes the bygone era of the radioplay, with nimble musicians and voiceover artists Evan Mosher and Shawnmarie Stanton evoking over 50 characters as shadow puppets dance across the viewscreen on the bridge of the HMS Whooville, telling a time-traveling-timeless tale of what is truly important about our Holiday Season”
This has to make YouTube at some point…? Pretty please?
