Punch and Judy on Ice by Modern Times

PUTNEY- Southern Vermont’s favorite puppet theater event for young audiences returns for its 10th season of performances, workshops and school engagements. Sandglass Theater’s Winter Sunshine Series kicks off on Saturday, February 17th at 11am and 2pm with two public performances at Sandglass Theater.

“Punch and Judy On Ice” celebrates the season with a story of the world's most well-preserved puppet character! In this ever-evolving saga by Modern Times Theater, Mr. Punch is trying to beat the winter blues. He dances with his wife Judy, subdues a crocodile, trains his dog Toby (who looks suspiciously like a skunk), and more! Live music (played on everything from the ukulele to the bicycle pump) accompanies his hilarious journey.

Into The Woods Opens at Main Street Arts

SAXTONS RIVER, Vt. – A journey through childhood fairy tales – with a twist – is the theme of Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Into the Woods,” which opens Friday, Nov. 10 at Main Street Arts for a two-weekend run.

The music and lyrics by Sondheim and book by James Lapine weave together the plots of old favorites by the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault as they wander through the woods of their fantasies seeking their heart’s desires, but not always finding a happy ending.

Director David Stern has described his concept of the show as a “very unusual” production, with this version asking more of the audience and performers and giving more in return.
