Modern Times Theater has been making and touring puppet shows, variety acts, and novelty music, and creating public community events since 2007.

Our brand new album is now available! You can get your copy at any of our shows this year, or download it by clicking here.


It’s parade time again in East Hardwick, and we are putting on another week of free community workshops. This time, we’re building games and booths to create a Kid-Powered Street Fair. Theater workshops will convert local children into Carnies and, thanks to the magic of paper-mache and cardboard, the East Hardwick town green will transform into a homemade fair.

And! The East Hardwick Parade Band is rehearsing every Thursday at 7 night until Parade day (June 12th). All abilities & all instruments welcome.

Become a Patron of Modern Times Theater to help support community events like this.
