Milo the Magnificent by Alex and Olmsted.
The Jim Henson Foundation Grant awarded “Milo the Magnificent” is a highly engaging puppet show about an aspiring magician. Using stunningly innovative puppetry, Milo presents a variety of magic tricks which don’t always go as planned. All ages.
Alex & Olmsted (Alex Vernon and Sarah Olmsted Thomas) have been making puppets
together since 2010. In recent years, they have performed at the international Puppet Festival
Chuncheon in South Korea, the Festival de Casteliers in Montréal, Symphony Space and LaMaMa in New York City, The Puppeteers of America Festival, and two National Puppet Slams. “Milo the Magnificent” was awarded a 2017 Jim Henson Foundation Grant and a Greenbelt Community Foundation Grant and was featured on the front page of the Hartford Courant. Alex & Olmsted are resident artists at Baltimore Theatre Project. They are also proud company members of Happenstance Theater with whom they have created 9 productions since 2012.
