Special Edition Kids at the Castle: The Box King

Told with hand carved marionettes and a transforming cardboard box, The Box King is a family show following two kingdoms. One with a queen and a kingdom that is clean and very well organized. One with a king and a kingdom that is incredibly forgetful but full of the happiest people you will ever meet.

These two kingdoms are joined together through the marriage of their leaders. But, what happens when the king loses the queen and cannot remember who anyone is any longer? Is putting everything and everyone into boxes the way to keep things organized, or is there more to an organized kingdom?

Conceived, Designed and Constructed by Seth Eberle
