Winter Sunshine Series returns with ‘I Laid An Egg’ at Sandglass

Tickets for all Winter Sunshine shows are $9 and are available by emailing info@sandglasstheater.org or calling 802-387-4051. Getting tickets in advance is highly encouraged, as seating is limited. Tickets at the door will be payable by cash or check. Sandglass Theater is an accessible, 60-seat theater located on Kimball Hill.

PUTNEY—On March 18, at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Sandglass’s beloved Winter Sunshine series begins with Double Image Theater Lab.

I Laid an Egg is an original piece inspired by a dream the co-creator Margot had as a child. Margot goes on an adventure with her imaginary pal, Egg, in a world made of shadows and household items.

A nonverbal, interactive show filled with many unexpected surprises and discoveries, I Laid an Egg bears elements of Shadow Theater, Object Theater, and music, inviting the audience into a child’s realm of make-believe. It presents a poetic imaginative journey for the child in all of us.

Sandglass Theater’s Winter Sunshine series provides a lively respite from the cold, a creative interlude between snow shoveling and wood schlepping, and the shine of laughter through the darkness of our Vermont winter months. Audiences can partake in hot chocolate and freshly baked concessions and enjoy the family programs.

The next Winter Sunshine show is March 25, which will feature Brad Shur with Cardboard Explosion!, a one-of-a-kind puppetry experience fueled entirely by cardboard and the power of audience participation. Shur also will teach a public workshop at the Brattleboro Food Co-op on Sunday, March 26, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Kudos to the Boston Globe for encouraging newspapers across the country to remind us all of the value of a free press, and to the Commons for hearing that call. The NYTimes article, A Free Press Needs You, concludes with the following: \"If you haven’t already, please subscribe to your local papers. Praise them when you think they’ve done a good job and criticize them when you think they could do better. We’re all in this together.\" Today I plan to subscribe.

Thank you for your efforts to disseminate the news of the day and resist the hate-filled and deceitful rhetoric of this administration. I cannot believe, still, in this country that it is necessary for the press and regular citizens to defend themselves. Only one quarter or less of the citizens believe a word he says yet you are forced to defend yourselves because his speech is so incediary. The press is now officially our last line of defense.

Spot on...thank you for challenging those who would blanketly dismiss your opinion/facts to do their own \"facts checking\". Unfortunately I fear many if not most of these sheep will be lead to slaughter thinking that they are going to the trough.

Foreign hand on the scale isn’t an unbiased conclusion. You argument might be more forceful without highlighting this issue.
