Sandglass Theater releases archival videos, holds puppet craft sessions online
PUTNEY — Sandglass Theater is releasing archival videos for those interested in learning about the company's evolution since its founding in 1982.
"They are not meant to equal a live performance; rather they offer insight into where we have been and where we are going," said Sandglass co-founder Eric Bass in a news release.
Sandglass is also offering weekly, livestreamed puppet craft sessions through its Facebook page every Thursday at 2 p.m.
The archival videos will be released online via the company's Vimeo channel over the next few months, beginning with "Isidor's Cheek," a family favorite by Sandglass co-founder Ines Zeller Bass, on Saturday. This recording is from the final performance of the show at the Ballard Museum and Institute in Storrs, Conn., in November 2015, before Bass retired from performing for children.
According to a statement from the company, Sandglass is navigating how to serve audiences as Vermonters are urged to stay home to fight the spread of COVID-19.
