Modern Times Theater raises the curtain to reveal action, adventure and drama, all played out by handmade puppets. The Northeast Kingdom company composed of Vermont Vaudeville producers Rose Friedman and Justin Lander stages a puppet show trilogy evoking the feel of a Saturday morning cartoon. Taking place over three consecutive weekends, the production follows the classic characters Punch and Judy as they find themselves in white-knuckle situations. Starting with this weekend’s Punch & Judy: A Melodrama, each installment begins with a humorous mini-concert and a gramophone dance party and ends in a cliffhanger, keeping audience members coming back for more.
