BELLOWS FALLS — Families and youth of all ages are invited to the Rockingham Free Public Library on Monday, Dec. 23, at 5 p.m., for Punschi, a special family event.
Punschi is an action-packed performance by second-generation puppeteer Jana Zeller of Sandglass Theater and her cast of German hand puppets.
Inspired by European fairground traditions, the show includes two hand-puppet adventures, clowning, and musical interludes on the ukulele.
Zeller grew up in a family of internationally touring puppeteers and began working as a designer and painter for the theater in her teens.
As a set painter and designer, she has worked in theater, opera, TV, and film, and has designed and built a wide range of puppets. She founded her own puppet company and has created three full-length puppet shows for adults.
Her work has been presented in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Germany, and India. For the past two years, Zeller has enjoyed performing for family audiences and touring with her sister.
