Place: Sandglass Theater, 17 Kimball Hill, Putney, VT (about 26 miles from Keene)
Price: Contact for more info
Ages: All

(2 & 4pm.) 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.
