Filament Theatre presents Cloud Man

Filament Theatre, the Northwest Side’s premier theater for young audiences, is delighted to present the magical Constellation Points’ Cloud Man from March 16 to April 14.

The production is thanks to a new partnership between Filament and the Scottish theatre company Constellation Points.

Cloud Man features exquisite puppetry and invites audience members to follow the clues to the very top of Cloud Mountain, where the views are always surprising. The story is told by cloud expert Cloudia, who always had her head in the clouds. All of her life, she has dreamt of seeing a Cloud Man–an extremely rare creature who lives a quiet life up high in the sky.

A cleverly staged show featuring one performer, puppets, storytelling and lots of clouds, Cloud Man explores the ways we try to make sense of the world. It encourages audiences to notice the beauty and wonder to be found in everyday life. It’s a gentle lesson in the ways we can care for the world without controlling it.

Cloud Man has been specifically designed for audiences members between 4-7 years old, but Filament welcomes family members of all ages.

Cloud Man will be performed on Saturdays at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. from March 16 through April 14. There is no performance on March 31. A sensory friendly performance will be held April 6 at 11 a.m. Field trips are available. Tickets at
