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.
