The annual "Labapalooza! Mini Festival of New Puppet Theater" pops up at St. Ann’s Warehouse (38 Water St. at Main Street in DUMBO) on May 22. The Puppet Lab, under the direction of Dan Hurlin and Theodora Skipitares, is St. Ann’s platform for emerging puppet artists.

The festival, divided between two programs, offers an imaginative array of stories. Program A features "Constance Holiday: Hollywood Nurse" (pictured), a dark musical portrait of Tinseltown by Ed Woodham; Amanda Maddock’s "Lady Grey’s Escape," in which a woman sips tea and remembers her life; Michael Kelly and Alissa Mello’s "Time Flies," a dream play exploring Einstein’s musings about time; and "Permanent Disruption," a miniature museum of the future in which Chris Maresca explores the manipulation of fear and constant surveillance.

Program B features Tom Lee’s "The Hoplite Diary: Part II," which retells Homer’s "Iliad" from the perspective of a lone Greek warrior; Richard Ebihara’s "The 47th Street Hotel," a little haven on the edge of hell; and Miranda Hardy and Peter Ksander’s "The Stupid Butterfly Project," a fable about a butterfly and a meteorologist.

Program A runs May 22, May 24, May 30 and June 1 at 8 pm. Program B runs May 23, May 25 and May 29-30 at 8 pm. Tickets are $20 per program or $30 for both. For tickets, call (718) 858-2424 or visit ticketweb.com.
