'The Daughters of Sunset'

When: Aug. 24-27, 8 p.m. 2017

The relationship between darkness and light shines through a full-length shadow play by Night Shade Shadow Theater. Native Vermonter Sarah Frechette and Jason Thibodeaux make up this Portland, Ore., company that continues the tradition of shadow puppetry by using light to manipulate depth and space. Their show, The Daughters of Sunset, makes its Green Mountain debut on Thursday, taking audience members along on a mother’s search into her daughter’s mysterious disappearance. Hand-cut illustrations, an original soundtrack and skillful storytelling make for a unique and cinema-like viewing experience for teens and adults.

Price: $10-20.
