Modern Times Theater

The Rockingham Free Public Library presents Modern Times Theater in “That’s the Story of y Life” on Friday, August 13th, at 5pm at the Rockingham Recreation (Playground Road, Bellows Falls, VT)


The hills are alive with the sound of music in this all-ages puppet production. 


“That’s The Story of My Life” follows the troubles and travails of puppetry’s favorite loudmouth, Mr. Punch as he sings his way through trouble, adventure, and triumph.  Included in the cast are the Bozo Brothers, who delight audiences with their dynamic percussive dance routines.  This is hand-puppetry at its best in a style that has entertained children for centuries.  In addition to the puppet show, the program also features a mini concert, offering selections from an extensive repertoire of early jazz, classic American folk songs and original novelty numbers, performed on the cornet, ukulele, and bicycle pump. 


Rose Friedman and Justin Lander have been making and performing puppet shows together since 2003.  They are co-founders of Vermont Vaudeville, Vermont’s premier Vaudeville troupe.  Librarians say Modern Times Theater “engages all ages with their superb talent, wit and enthusiasm”, and “you must, must see them in person”! 

This program is free and open to the public and perfect for all ages.
