Sandglass Presents THE LITTLE BREAD HEN, 2/25!


On Saturday, February 25, Sandglass Theater, Crabgrass Puppet Theatre and Puppetwork New England present the next in the Winter Sunshine Series of family performances at Sandglass Theater: “The Little Bread Hen" by Barefoot Puppets of Richmond, VA. 

Inspired by the classic tale of The Little Red Hen, this puppet show uncovers the truth behind some of the glaring plot holes in the original version: how does a chicken learn to bake bread and why, exactly, won’t the other animals help? Journey with us to a small European bakery as we cook up the answers to those questions and more in this hilarious retelling! Barefoot Puppet Theatre’s original puppets, innovative staging and surprise ending are seasoned with a liberal dash of Dr. Seuss, Brementown Musicians and The Fox and The Hen in this 45-minute performance for family audiences. 

Performances are at 2 & 4 pm and tickets are $8. Reservations are strongly encouraged - all of the shows in the series to date have sold out! For more information or to make reservations, please call the Sandglass box office at 387-4051. You may also make reservations by replying to this email; please be sure to say which performance you are attending and how many seats you will need.
