MODERN TIMES THEATER will present the latest episode of “The Perils of Mr. Punch”, following the troubles and travails of puppetry’s favorite loudmouths, Punch and Judy. Saturday, June 26 at 3:00 pm (rain date Sunday, June 27). Location: Thetford Hill Green. All ages welcome.
Modern Times Theater has been adapting and updating Punch and Judy shows for over a decade. Co-founders Rose Friedman and Justin Lander are a husband and wife duo, producers of the award winning Vermont Vaudeville and alumni of the Bread and Puppet Theater. Parents themselves, they strive to present quality entertainment that the whole family can enjoy. “Modern Times Theater a vaudevillian enterprise, part funny-serious puppets, part jaunty live 1920s band, part serious social critique, part shenanigans.” (2/14/13, WBUR Boston, Greg Cook)
