Footpath to the Circus Puppets
October 30 – November 1
Call for your tickets to join us for another outdoor in-person event on Halloween Weekend! The puppet cast of The Pig Act , Sandglass’ unusual puppet circus from 2000, has emerged once again, and is eager to show you their strange and mysterious acts!
Footpath to the CIRCUS Puppets is a performance in three acts that takes you around the Sandglass grounds, with roaming guides, music and puppets emerging from behind shrubbery and an old trolley car, all in a manner that observes social distancing and audience safety. Step into another world and witness acts of daring, humor and wonder. Costumes encouraged!
Performers include three generations of the Sandglass family and special guest appearances by the spectacular Chris Yerlig (www.mimealot.com) and original cast member of Pig Act, Finn Campman.
There will be no bathrooms available so take care of business before you arrive. To ensure the health and safety of our community and maintain social distancing while together, you will be seated and move about in “pod” groups.
Ticket prices are a sliding scale starting at $10 per person. Show times are: Friday, October 30th 4 PM, 5 PM, Saturday, October 31st 1 PM, 2 PM and 3 PM and Sunday, November 1st 1 PM, 2 PM, 3 PM, 4 PM. Sandglass is located in the heart of Putney at 17 Kimball Hill, off of I91 exit 4.
To book your spot call (802) 387-4051 Monday – Friday 10AM – 2:30PM or leave a message; calls will be returned within 1 business day. There is a maximum of 16 seats at each performance divided into no more than 8 “pod” groups, so please book in advance to assure your spot. At the time of purchase, the ticket buyer will be asked to complete a form with the names and contact details (address, phone, email) for each person in their pod as well as share any accessibility needs. Please note that this is an outdoor event that requires movement from one station to the next on uneven and unpaved terrain. At the event, patrons will complete a brief health survey and temperature check prior to admittance. All patrons will be required to wear a mask and maintain a minimum of 6’ social distance between pod groups for the duration of the performance; the ground will be clearly marked to help maintain social distancing between pod groups.
I’m Lisa McCormick, and I’ll be leading a Halloweeny Ukulele Flash Mob on the Brattleboro Commons this coming Saturday at noon. Masks are a must, and social distancing is easy, as there is plenty of space for spreading out. Costumes highly encouraged!
I’ll also be live-broadcasting the event on Zoom, so ANYONE can come, from anywhere!
