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

This winter we are creating two new works- “Big Broken Business” a solo hand puppet show which has received support from the Henson Foundation, and “We’re Not From Here” a vaudeville and puppetry duo show for touring to small venues, for which we received a Creation Grant from the Vermont Arts Council. Stay tuned for details and updates on both, and be sure to follow us on social media or Patreon for behind the scenes sneak peeks.
