NUTT AND BOLT 
Presented by: Atlas Performing Arts Center

Nutt and Bolt are robot rivals. They spend their days using the random junkyard objects around them (and on them!) in games of skill and sound, rallying their wee friends, the audience, for support. As the competition builds to a frenzied pinnacle, Nutt and Bolt realize that by working together, they can make something even more wonderful than they could on their own! Together, sounds become stories, notes become music, and the world becomes full of possibility. Through props, costumes, and sets created entirely out of upcycled or recycled objects, Nutt and Bolt reinforces a child's transformative power of imagination and their own ability to make ordinary objects into something extraordinary.
