Modern Times Theater will be performing a Punch and Judy puppet show at Quechee Library on Tuesday, June 28, 4 p.m. The show is appropriate for ages 1-100 and is co-sponsored by the Vermont Dept. of Libraries. “Punch and Judy” follows the troubles and travails of puppetry’s favorite loudmouth, Mr. Punch. This is hand-puppetry at its best in a style that has entertained children for centuries. It addition to the puppet show, the program also features live music, sing-a-longs, classic jokes and gags, and audience participation.
Modern Times Theater delights family audiences with their handmade wooden and papier mache puppets, in a modern Vermont update of the age-old Punch and Judy show. There will be live acoustic music on a variety of instruments, from the ukulele to the bicycle pump, as well as a thrilling puppet show, all calculated to delight and enlighten both children and their folks.
Rose Friedman and Justin Lander have been making and performing puppet shows together since 2003. They are co-founders of Vermont Vaudeville, Vermont’s premier Vaudeville troupe. Librarians say Modern Times Theater “engages all ages with their superb talent, wit and enthusiasm”, and “you must, must see them in person”!
