Puppets in Paradise
September 14 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Sandglass Theater is happy to announce the return of our most beloved community event: Puppets in Paradise! This year we are thrilled to present this biennial fundraiser in partnership with Retreat Farm in Brattleboro. This new partnership is grounded in a shared interest to nurture the relationship between the arts and agricultural in Vermont as a fundamental aspect of our local identity. At Puppets in Paradise (PIP) audiences will walk around the farm and encounter short form puppet performances, theater artists and musicians amidst the fields, historic barns and animals. Food and refreshments from local vendors add to the delight of a beautiful day.
This year Sandglass welcomes an exciting roster of first-time and returning performers including Joshua Holden, Chad Williams, Finn Campman, Liz Joyce, Faye Dupras, Rose Friedman and Justin Lander, Honey Goodenough, Walter Hagedorn, Cynthia Parker-Houghton and Sandglass co-founders Eric Bass and Ines Zeller Bass. Local musicians and theater artists will help create a magical atmosphere that will enchant the whole family.
Enjoy a weekend celebration of artistry, community and history thanks to support from Vermont State Employee Credit Union (VSECU). Puppets in Paradise runs from 10am to 4pm, last performance begins at 3:45. A hay wagon will facilitate accessibility options for most performance locations. Please allow at least 2 hours to experience the farm, animals, trails, and performances.
