Puppets in the Green Mountains:
Opening the Doors
Thursday, September 20 @ 5:30 pm
@ Brattleboro Museum and Art Center
10 Vernon St, Brattleboro, VT
Join us for this opening GALA celebration of Puppets in the Green Mountains at the Brattleboro Museum & Arts Center. Come and meet the international guest artists from Taiwan, the UK, and Canada, as well as our performers and other guests from around the US. Partake in a sumptuous array of sweet and savory bites, from Vermont cheeses and warm spanakopita triangles to chocolate almond cake and lemon tartlets.
This fun-filled evening is a great way to show your support for Sandglass and the festival while Opening the Doors to 4 days of inspiring performances, talks, and workshops. On top of the sumptuous bites, we’ll be serving up mock-tails to the tunes of Ron Kelley and the Hot Noodles. Also on the schedule: opening remarks from the festival and a not-to-be-missed exclusive pop-up performance!
