Cashore Marionettes take to the Hardin County stage

The Hardin County Performance Series and the Barlow Family Foundation are bringing the Cashore Marionettes to the Iowa Falls High School Auditorium at 7 p.m. March 25. Tickets for adults and students are available at Main Street Chamber Iowa Falls, Green Belt Bank and Trust and the Hardin County Savings Bank.

In the performance titled “Life in Motion,” Joseph Cashore presents his collection of marionette masterworks. Characters of depth, integrity and humanity are portrayed in a full evening unlike anything else in theater today. The performance is a series of scenes taken from everyday life and set to beautiful music by composers such as Beethoven, Vivaldi, Strauss and Copland.

Through a combination of virtuoso manipulation, humor, pathos, classic music and poetic insight, The Cashore Marionettes take the audience on a journey that celebrates the richness of life. “Life in Motion” is a powerful, entertaining, surprising, theatrically satisfying, one-of-a-kind evening for adults and young adults.

The Hardin County Performance Series is a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring inspired performances to Hardin County resulting in excited audiences and enriched communities. For more information about this and other performances, visit their website at
