Modern Times Theater: The Perils of Mr. Punch

Walden Community Library 135 Cahoon Farm Rd, West Danville, VT, United States

The library's Summer Kickoff BBQ features Modern Times Theater with their live Punch and Judy show, updated for the 21st century. Allow Mr. Punch to remove your bad mood, in this absurdist delight for four out of the five senses. Watch as Judy tames unruly plumbing while avoiding the jaws of the carnivore du jour! It’s a melodrama of epically small proportions, and it’s so funny that you’ll forget to take out your phone for at least the first half hour. It’s a low-tech old-time spectacle, as entertaining to the masses of today as it was three hundred years ago.
