Ala Dean and the Marvelous Lamp

In 2006, Magic Lantern presented the highly successful multi-media shadow show Ala Dean and the Marvelous Lamp at the Center for Independent Artists, providing free tickets to many of the aforementioned groups. A Minnesota State Arts Board Artist’s Initiative Grant that was awarded to Anne Sawyer supported this production. Sawyer wrote and produced the show in addition to building all 150 puppets for the piece.
