Alissa Hunnicutt’s “The Kid Inside” Offers a Sweet and Dirty Look into our Inner Child

New York-based singer and puppeteer Alissa Hunnicutt, known for her sweet and spunky cabaret performances, is bringing her latest production, "THE KID INSIDE," to Orlando for two entertaining evenings of music and theater on December 4th and 5th, 2010, at Gallery at Avalon Island in Downtown Orlando.

Hunnicutt's The Kid Inside reminds her audience of an inevitable truth: the child you once were is still a big part of who you are. The same kid who is open and vulnerable enough to get really hurt, is also the one who remains an eternal optimist, telling you to get up and go on.

The Kid Inside is presented as a multi-media show featuring videos, six styles of puppetry—hand/rod, shadow, toy theater, table top, found object and marionette—and a repertoire of songs ranging from pop to country that promises to make audiences laugh and cry.

Alissa Hunnicutt’s sweet and dirty show may feature puppets, but it is not for kids! The audience will experience emotions ranging from laughter to sadness during the immensely adorable performance by this dynamic and talented performer.

Avid cabaret and Broadway show enthusiasts looking for a theater experience that blends songs, patter, puppets and profanity—all in one single show—should not miss Alissa Hunnicutt’s The Kid Inside.

"The intelligence and emotional roller coaster of this show is one I will never forget...” says Sue Matsuki of Cabaret Hotline Online “This show is literally a work of art."

The Kid Inside is being presented as part of the 6th Orlando Puppet Festival, an annual arts event featuring headline guest performances for both adult and family audiences throughout Downtown Orlando during the first weekend in December.

Hunnicutt is accompanied by Terry Thomas on piano and puppeteers Z Briggs and Chad Williams, under the direction of Warren Kelley and Musical Director and Co-Creator, Steven Katz.

An accomplished performer, Alissa Hunnicutt’s other projects include a series of toy theater country songs, a puppetry character study inspired by the Drei Lieder Der Ophelia, and a full-length puppet musical entitled “Picasso’s Muse.”

The Kid Inside will be playing on December 4th and 5th, 2010, at 8:15 PM at Gallery at Avalon Island on 39 S. Magnolia Ave., Orlando, FL 32801 and tickets will be available at the door for $10.
