In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre

In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre

In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre (also known as Heart of the Beast or HOBT) is a puppet company from Minneapolis, Minnesota. HOBT began in 1973 as Powderhorn Puppet Theatre, named for a neighborhood park and lake in Minneapolis, and changed their name in 1979. In 1987 they moved into the Avalon Theater, a former cinema that HOBT purchased in 1990 for the building and staging of productions. The company has written and performed scores of full-length puppet plays, performed throughout the US, Canada, Korea and Haiti and toured the Mississippi River from end to end, and is best known for their annual MayDay Parade and Ceremony that is seen by as many as 35,000 people each year.
