Bread & Puppet Returns!
Vermont's Bread & Puppet Theater returned to Penland last week for another excellent and bizarre show. They started with three little plays with flat cardboard puppets in this little cardboard theater.
A highlight was the Vermont Secessionist Party Sheepnose Choir.
Here they are singing. There were a lot of great voices in this company.
At the end of the show they revived a 47-year-old Bread & Puppet piece called "The King Story." Here are the King and the Great Warrior.
The King and the Blue Man and his son.
An epic battle between the Dragon and the Great Warrior.
Of course, the music was rollicking throughout.
(Look out! A banjo and an accordion in the same band!)
