Modern Times Theater Puppet Show :: Wednesday, August 21 at 4 PM

The Perils of Mr. Punch” follows the troubles and travails of puppetry’s favorite loudmouths, Punch and Judy. In the latest episode, Mr. Punch attempts to be the first puppet to go to space. Of course nothing ever goes right—his wife Judy is more than happy to see him go, his rocket ship is made of cardboard, and crocodiles appear around every corner. The skillfully operated hand puppets are chock full of surprises and tricks, as is the elaborate stage. The show is rounded out with live music played on a variety of instruments, from the ukulele to the bicycle pump. It’s a low-tech old-time spectacle, entertaining to people of all ages: from one to one hundred.

 

Modern Times Theater has been adapting and updating Punch and Judy shows for over a decade. Co-founders Rose Friedman and Justin Lander are a husband and wife duo, producers of the award winning Vermont Vaudeville and alumni of the Bread and Puppet Theater. Parents themselves, they strive to present quality entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.
