Last chance this year to see a Winter Sunshine show!

The Winter Sunshine Series presents

The Pirate, The Princess and The Pea
by Crabgrass Puppet Theatre

Saturday March 30 at 11 am and 2 pm

Sandglass Theater’s beloved Winter Sunshine series concludes the 12th season of family puppet shows with The Pirate, The Princess and The Pea by Crabgrass Puppet Theatre on Saturday March 30th at 11 am and 2 pm at Sandglass Theater.

Pirate lore meets fairy tale in The Pirate, the Princess and the Pea, a swashbuckling pirate and princess adventure story from Crabgrass Puppet Theatre.

Meet the pirate: “A pirate’s life isn’t all ‘yo-ho-ho and a bottle of grog,’ ya know. It’s hard work escapin’ from sea monsters, keepin’ the crabs from eatin’ me nose, and fallin’ overboard just in time to meet the local shark. But it’s worth it when I find that map and start searchin’ for treasure . . .
Meet the princess: “Life in the palace is so boring, all tuffets and tea parties! So when I find a treasure map and sneak away from the palace, I’m ready for some adventure –
A pirate and a princess are on a treasure hunt, searching for the same prize. The princess stays one step ahead of the pirate with every clue, but how can she get him out of the way long enough to dive for the treasure? ”

Join Vermont’s own Crabgrass Puppet Theatre on this thrilling voyage chock full of sea monsters, sharks and side-splitting action!

Join us for a week of fun, inspiration and action, as we dive into this years PUPPET CAMP!
We will focus on building puppets out of recycled materials and creating a short performance about climate change! Every one will build a puppet, and help to construct sets and props. Those youth who like to perform can be on stage, but we also need stage hands who animate the set and people who can run the lights and sound. There will be an informal puppet show at the end of the week for our friends and family. There will also be time to play in the beautiul field and woods behind Sandglass Theater and get popsicles at the General Store.
Ages 9 and up. Fee is $250 per child due the first day of camp.

Don’t miss all the fun! Register now by calling (802) 387 4051 or emailing!
