Marionettes to take families on ‘An Arabian Adventure’


PUTNEY -- The 2014 Winter Sunshine Series of Family Performances at Sandglass Theater continues on Saturday at 1 and 3 p.m., with "An Arabian Adventure," presented by the Tanglewood Marionettes of Massachusetts.

Told with beautifully crafted marionettes in a storybook setting, "An Arabian Adventure" is a swashbuckling tale set in exotic lands. A Persian prince is thrown into a dungeon because of his love for a beautiful princess. Facing danger at every turn, the courageous prince uses his wits to escape, defeat the diabolical vizier and save the princess from a tragic fate.

Tickets are $8. There are only 60 seats available for each performance and most shows sell out. Call the Sandglass box office at 802-387-4051 for reservations and information. These performances are supported by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies.
