To Bring War Dollars Home

Kickoff Parade and Performance by the Possibilitarian Puppet Theater
Convene at Old Stone Church, 91 Public Square, Cleveland - 5:00 - 5:30 pm
In and around Public Square
As we parade around, The Possibilitarian Puppet Theater will organize a series of brief performances at the end of which the Umbrella Brigade will move to center and open umbrellas to reveal the message "Bring War $$ Home". Any and all participants welcome! Come at 4 pm to Old Stone Church to be in the parade at 5pm. Or, just come for the parade at 5 pm.

Help us tell the story of our tax dollars sent away to war, never to return to our local communities!

Parade with us to speak truth to the government.
Parade with us to share your frustration and outrage with like-minded people.
Parade with us to help change the minds of everyone else.
Parade with us to break the spell of silence and disempowerment.

We want you to get into the act! Pick one of the following -

1. To join the PPT parade and performance, come to Old Stone Church at 4:00 pm for rehearsal. PPT will also offer free puppet-making workshops for anyone interested in this unique and involving art. You will help assemble the actual puppets that will be used on Friday, April 15 - email

2. To participate in the Umbrella Brigade portion of the performance, here's what you do:

a) Reserve your place by emailing us by March 21st.
b) We will help you attach a fabric sign, BRING WAR $$ HOME, to an umbrella that YOU BRING to either of these meetings - Thursday April 7, 7-8:30 pm or Saturday, April 9, 1-3 pm.
c) Come to Old Stone Church at 4:00 pm on Friday, April 15, with your umbrella/sign, to rehearse with the Possibilitarian Puppet Theater.
