Tiny Beautiful Things

Tiny Beautiful Things

Weston Playhouse Theatre Company
Weston Playhouse at Walker Farm, 705 Main Street, Weston, VT 05161

Called “a theatrical hug for turbulent times,” TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS is a funny and moving celebration of the power of empathy and the tiny moments that make up our lives. For two years, anonymous advice columnist “Dear Sugar” navigated her readers’ deeply personal questions and discovered love for people she only knew through her computer screen and courage to share her personal experiences with them. This play, an adaptation of Strayed’s memoir, weaves those conversations together into a toughing story full of hope, laughter, and humanity. Based on the book by Cheryl Strayed, adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos.

Tickets $45-60. Does not include sales tax and fees.

Sandglass Theater Archive Video on Demand

From the Sandglass Archives

Sandglass Theater has created twenty-five productions since our founding in 1982. Most of these have been video recorded for archival purposes, which means they are for our own documentation, marketing, and press outreach. Some of these recordings are better than others, although none of them is recorded with the intention of conveying the full experience of a live performance. These recordings offer a window into our past for those who want to learn more about our history and how our work has developed over these decades. The videos we have selected offer insight into where we have been and where we are going.

Richard 3.5: Light Ruminations on Murder
A collaboration between Bob Berky and Sandglass Theater. Live from the 15th century, King Richard III is here to perform, for your enjoyment, 11 murders and 7 songs that Shakespeare never meant to write. Surrounded by larger-than-life candles, whose wax is used to create the puppet victims before your eyes, Richard and his emcee accomplice dance and sing their way through this epic tragedy.

Isidor’s Cheek, Family Audiences
So begins the song, which begins the story, which begins the adventure: One day, something drives Isidor from his little grey existence. His cheek runs away and Isidor must search around the world to find it again: a world of color and beauty as well as loneliness and even danger. Inspired by a German children’s book.

Sandglass Theater Archive Video on Demand

Sandglass Theater Archive Video on Demand

From the Sandglass Archives

Sandglass Theater has created twenty-five productions since our founding in 1982. Most of these have been video recorded for archival purposes, which means they are for our own documentation, marketing, and press outreach. Some of these recordings are better than others, although none of them is recorded with the intention of conveying the full experience of a live performance. These recordings offer a window into our past for those who want to learn more about our history and how our work has developed over these decades. The videos we have selected offer insight into where we have been and where we are going.

Richard 3.5: Light Ruminations on Murder
A collaboration between Bob Berky and Sandglass Theater. Live from the 15th century, King Richard III is here to perform, for your enjoyment, 11 murders and 7 songs that Shakespeare never meant to write. Surrounded by larger-than-life candles, whose wax is used to create the puppet victims before your eyes, Richard and his emcee accomplice dance and sing their way through this epic tragedy.

Isidor’s Cheek, Family Audiences
So begins the song, which begins the story, which begins the adventure: One day, something drives Isidor from his little grey existence. His cheek runs away and Isidor must search around the world to find it again: a world of color and beauty as well as loneliness and even danger. Inspired by a German children’s book.
