LASER BEAK MAN
Power City was once the most beautiful city in the world—clean, pure, perfect—and local hero Laser Beak Man worked hard to keep it that way. Drawing energy from the underground Magna Crystals that powered the city, his beak-shot lasers turned bad things to good. But now the city isn’t what it used to be and Laser Beak Man is thoroughly over it. That is, until his estranged childhood friends Peter Batman and Evil Emily return and steal the Magna Crystals. Robbed of his super powers, Laser Beak Man has one last chance to reinvent Power City and save his oldest buddies before they destroy everything. Jam-packed with the trademark visual puns of artist Tim Sharp and featuring live music composed and performed by Sam Cromack of Ball Park Music, the world of “Laser Beak Man” is brought to life in puppet form by the creative geniuses of Dead Puppet Society (“The Wider Earth”, “Argus”, “The Harbinger”) in this stunning new visual theatre work loaded with cutting edge digital imagery.
