Sandglass Theater’s most beloved community event, Puppets in Paradise, brings together artists and audience for a two-day celebration oftheater arts and agrarian traditionsof Southern Vermont.Thispremier biennial family event is produced with Retreat Farm, a prominent feature of the Brattleboro landscape for 180 years. Today its 500 acres of conserved forests, farmlands, trails, waterways, and gardens is freely accessible to the community.
Puppets in Paradise 2021 will be a gentle and safe opportunity for audiences to return to in-person performance and meaningful engagement among audience and artists. We are still in the planning stages and will announce details about the event in June. Puppets in Paradise includes performances that traverse the expansive farm grounds, and time to visit some of the farm offerings such as pastured animals and an interpretive story hike.
We look forward to seeing you in the summer!
The project is funded in part by a grant from the Thomas Thompson Trust and is sponsored by People's United Bank.
