157 Montague St, Brooklyn, NY 11201-3504, United States

In 1937 The Federal Theater Project opened a 2 hour children's musical starring 50 roller skating beavers fighting a violent class war. The Boxcutter Collective is excited to present a first "Work-in -Progress" showing that includes a hand puppet adaptation of the original show, and interludes from FTP director Hallie Flanagan's passionate testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee complete with accordion and musical numbers. “The Revolt of the Beavers” is a proud recipient of a 2017 Jim Henson Foundation Workshop Grant. This show is part of the Brooklyn Folk Festival, so in order to see it you have to buy a ticket for the morning/afternoon session. The ticket costs $25, but it gets you access to hours of music.
