Opening the Doors

Opening the Doors

Sandglass Theater is excited to announce our 10th Puppets in the Green Mountains Festival: Opening the Doors. This September, theater companies from the United Kingdom, Taiwan, Canada and the United States will appear in venues throughout Brattleboro and Putney, VT, exploring themes of Access and Inclusion  highlighted by a keynote speaker to focus us on the dynamic relationship between activism and the art of puppetry. This exciting festival of performances, workshops, community dialogues, exhibits, and a unique puppet slam will celebrate the rich world of Puppet Theater, through which we connect, learn, play, and engage!

September 20-23, 2018

This year we’re teaming up with the Puppeteers of America Regional festival: Puppet Homecoming, bringing regional puppeteers and puppet enthusiasts to Brattleboro for an intensive weekend of workshops, cabaret performances, puppetry exhibits, and more!
