CANCELED - Modern Times Theater presents: The Perils of Mr. Punch
The one and only Punch and Judy, presented live, and updated for the 21st century. Allow Mr. Punch to deftly remove your bad mood, whilst he exhausts your child! Gawk as Judy struggles to balance a checkbook before being eaten by a shark! Feast your eyes upon the diaper change that should not be!

Its a melodrama of epically small proportions, and its so funny that you'll forget to take out your phone for at least the first half hour.

The hand puppets are created from up-cycled designer trash and performed in an eccentric itinerant puppet stage. The show is hosted per tradition by a bottler, the uku-lady Rose Friedman. Justin Lander, showman of the absurd, portrays all the characters.

The program is rounded out with live music played on a variety of instruments, from the cornet to the bicycle pump. Its a low-tech old-time spectacle, entertaining to people of all ages: from one to one hundred.

Modern Times Theater has been adapting and updating Punch and Judy puppet shows for over a decade. Co-founders Rose Friedman and Justin Lander are a husband and wife duo, producers for Vermont Vaudeville and alumni of the Bread and Puppet Theater. Parents themselves, they strive to present quality entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.

Watching Modern Times Theater founders Rose and Justin perform is inspiring on many fronts. They are confident and consummate professionals who know their art well. They are wonderfully creative, using their multiple skills to craft original content in their own inimitable style. They are hysterically historic, utilizing the traditional arts of puppetry, theater, vaudeville, mime, music, and storytelling with wry humor. (Rob Mermin, founder Circus Smirkus)

This show is funded in part by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies.
