Puppets in Paradise
September 9, 2023 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Sandglass Theater is pleased to announce the return of our most beloved community event. Puppets in Paradise brings together artists and audiences for a two-day celebration of puppetry and theater arts set in the beautiful agrarian landscape of Southern Vermont. This premier biennial family event is produced in collaboration with Retreat Farm, a prominent feature of the Brattleboro landscape for 180 years. At Puppets in Paradise 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 Stoph Scheer, Sam and Friends, CactusHead Puppets, Jeghetto’s Entertainment, Sova Puppet and Dance Theater, Break-Fast Puppets, and Sandglass Theater, among others. This year will also feature a special community project involving a field of dancing sheep.
