“Rat Race: The Secret Life of ThemePark” transports audiences behind the theme park facades to another side of these "magical" worlds: one populated with puppets who talk back to their puppeteers, dancers who are stalked by theme park groupies and their taxidermied dogs, and women who will never be thin or white enough to be a princess. Based on the real experiences of more than sixty theme park workers and guests, “Rat Race” is a fast-paced physical exploration of the hilarious, dangerous, and disheartening sides of this reality, as well as the complications inherent in such an attempt at representation.
