Rec Room presents Garbage Island
Rec Room introduces Garbage Island, a live, interactive sketch performance for children ages 2-6. Garbage Island takes place in a literal garbage dump where off-the-wall characters come to life to solve mysteries using creative and critical thinking skills. There is an underlying message of earth consciousness and rubbish reuse.
Local singer-songwriter, Greg Cote, hosts the show as Garbage Man Joe, performing original music. Houston actors and Rec Room regulars Dano Colon, Tasha Gorel, and Orlanders Jones, perform as a rotation of multiple characters.Additionally, the show features pre-recorded video of puppet performance by Houston’s esteemed puppeteer, Joel Orr of Bobbindoctrin Puppet Theatre. The set and costumes are designed using only found materials to further highlight the theme of sustainability. Costumes are designed by Houston Grand Opera costumer, Clair Hummel.
