National Marionette Theatre Presents Hansel and Gretel this Saturday, February 27th

Sorry for the short notice, but I just learned of this special event. I have not seen this particular performance, but I have seen others and the National Marionette Theatre puts on an amazing show. NMT has not done a local show in quite some time – so check it out if you can!

The National Marionette Theatre presents two performances of Hansel and Gretel this Saturday, February 27th at 2:00 and 4:00 pm at the Hooker Dunham Theater in Brattleboro, VT.  Tickets are $10.  For  reservations and info call 802-254-9276


In their newest production, two master puppeteers, David and Peter Syrotiak, bring the most famous of the Brothers Grimm stories to life. Featuring exquisitely crafted marionettes, scrolling scenery and the beautiful music of Engelbert Humperdinck, Hansel and Gretel is sure to delight audiences of all ages!

National Marionette Theatre is one of the oldest continually running touring marionette theaters in the United States. Founded in 1967, this award-winning company has been entertaining and amazing audiences around the world for over forty years. The company specializes in adaptations of popular stories using marionettes as the performance medium. They travel with a fully self-contained theater complete with its own lighting and sound systems. The shows are suitable for family audiences of all ages.

David and Peter Syrotiak have been building and performing with the company since their teenage years. As the sons of artistic director David Syrotiak the two brothers have been around puppetry all their lives. Professionally they have over fifty years of combined performance experience between them. The two are dedicated to keeping the tradition of professional puppetry alive in the United States.

Just another one of the great local attractions that makes living and visiting our area so special! We hope to see you soon at the Inn at Valley Farms very soon!
