Back by popular demand, the award-winning Bread and Puppet Theater, featuring Artistic Director Peter Schumann and his troupe of 8 Vermont puppeteers, returns for a third year to the Cyclorama bringing their signature powerful imagery, masked characters, and giant papier-mâché puppets. Their residency includes two different puppet shows (the “spectacle”, primarily for ages 12 & older, and the "family-friendly” circus) and a week-long political art exhibit.
