About Flying Cardboard Theater
Flying Cardboard Theater is co-directed by Lindsay McCaw and Jason Hicks, puppeteers who have worked together for almost two decades. We collaborate with many talented local artists and activists. We are dedicated to creating traditional puppet theater, producing the Detroit Cantastoria Fest and other puppet-related community based art projects and events. We support local movements for Justice with art and theater.
Flying Cardboard Theater is currently based at “The Hive” a community workspace at St. Peter’s Church in Corktown, Detroit.
