Winter Sunshine Kicks off with Modern Times Theater

Winter Sunshine Series begins

Modern Times Theater

Punch and Judy on Ice

Saturday, February 17th at 11am and 2pm

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. This skillful performance brings a puppet classic to life with a contemporary vaudeville flair and a modern family-friendly sensibility. The story is told with hand puppets and recommended for ages 4 and up.

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

Tickets are $9 and are available emailing or calling (802) 387-4051. Reserving tickets in advance is highly encouraged as seating is limited.

The Winter Sunshine Series is funded in part by New England Foundation for the Arts and The Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Foundation.
