Kate Mueth and the Neo-Political Cowgirls world premiere production of Andromeda, August 25-28 at the Montauk County Park.
Presenting a cast of local Hamptons and NYC actors and puppets by award-winner Liz Joyce, Andromeda is a unique, outdoor, music-filled experience that is not to be missed.
Set under the stars on the edge of Montauk, an Ethiopian girl and her mother are in search of home. Their journey takes them to a strange village where danger and magic set in. Here, Andromeda struggles to find her voice, friendship, and sisterhood. But ultimately the challenge of being a refugee and an “other” is just too much, and she is in danger of never fitting into her true place in the world. Join the NeoPolitical Cowgirls on their newest journey and discover how Andromeda finds her place in the stars.
Bring a blanket, lawn chairs, and a picnic and immerse yourself in the dance, music, and puppets from the wild imagination of The NeoPolitical Cowgirls. Andromeda will be performed at the Montauk County Park (next to Deep Hollow Ranch out towards the Lighthouse) .
All performances begin at 7:30. Tickets are available at http://www.npcowgirls.org . All tickets are $20.
