Script and Songs by Charlotte Moroz

Presented at UNDER St. Mark’s Theater in New York, NY
Directed by Leigh Walter

Begochiddy, the one-woman puppet musical, has come a long way, from being an idea, to a handful of couple songs, to a loose story to a full-on musical puppet adventure, with a 6-person cast! In what may very well be the only one-woman puppet musical in New York, writer, performer and UCB-alum Charlotte Moroz has woven her life's story as a twin and a queer woman into this fantastical tale of Begochiddy, a feisty child-God who must save everyone and create a new world. In honor of how children create, Moroz set out to create something all her own, from musical score to homemade puppets. The result is a music- and adventure-filled creation story, which draws from Moroz's own stories and from Native American mythology. Moroz adeptly switches from Begochiddy to varied puppet personalities, portraying her struggle at coming to terms with her twin sister and ultimately battling and subduing an enemy who is not what he seems.

With an underlying message of self-love and courageous creation, the production appeals to teen, adult, LGBT-inclusive audiences and humans alike. Begochiddy is created and performed by Charlotte Moroz, with musical production by Jacob Slichter and musical accompaniment by David Moss.
