CHECK OUT A TRAILER HERE.

We are thrilled to announce the upcoming New York Premiere of RIDDLE OF THE TRILOBITES, a puppet-filled, all-ages musical adventure set underwater 500 million years ago. It’s a story of the prehistoric ocean’s dominant species - trilobites - as major environmental changes threaten their existence. With the fate of her kind on her armored shoulders, one young trilo named Aphra sets out on an epic journey with her best arthropod friends to solve a riddle, the ancient prophecy of her species: "The Trilobites Cannot Live, But Will Not Die..." With humor and songs, the play explores family, loss, and our connection to and impact on our planet.

Devised by CollaborationTown / book by Geo Decas O’Donnell & Jordan Seavey / music, lyrics, orchestrations, arrangements by Nicholas Williams / directed by Lee Sunday Evans / puppet design and fabrication by Amanda Villalobos / puppet direction by Pam Arciero.

A co-production between CollaborationTown and Flint Repertory Theater, RIDDLE OF THE TRILOBITES was developed as part of the New Victory LabWorks at The New Victory Theater in New York City. Development of the show was supported by: The Dramatist GuildThe New York State Council on the Arts as well as The Jim Henson Foundation.
