Latham Library is proud to present Modern Times Theater on June 19 at 4:00pm. Bring Dad or Grandpa to see “The Perils of Mr. Punch” episode #63, “Oceananigans Abound!”
This updated classic follows the troubles and travails of puppetry’s favorite loudmouth, Mr. Punch. The skillfully operated hand puppets are made of garbage and up-cycled material, and are chock full of surprises and tricks, as is the elaborate stage. It’s a low-tech old-time spectacle, entertaining to children of all ages: from one to one hundred. By taking the best from the long tradition of Punch and Judy shows, and bringing the art form into the 21st century, this classic remains alive, vital, and hysterical to both children and adults today.
Sign-up for the 2022 Summer Reading Program will be available. All ages are welcome and the show is free! This event is part of the Thetford Libraries “Oceans of Possibilities” summer reading program.
UPDATE: due to high winds this show has been moved inside to the Latham Library Community Room, on the lower level of the building.
