Saint Michael's hosts free performance by famed Bread & Puppet

COLCHESTER -- Saint Michaels invites the community to a performance by the world-famous Bread & Puppet theatrical group of Glover, Vt., on Saturday, Feb. 23, at 7 p.m. in the McCarthy Arts Center. The free public performance, titled The Divine Reality Comedy Circus, is sponsored by SMC Lecture Series, the Drama Club, and the Got Skills program. With inimitable panache, Bread & Puppets new show features the Grand Forgiveness Society of Glover, VT, the triumph of the small farmer, advice on where to get really cheap drinking water, a celebratory ballet by a flock of roosters, political issues and more. The raucous, highly engaging Bread & Puppet Circus Band will accompany the performance. According to B&P, if some of the circus acts are politically puzzling to adults, accompanying kids can usually explain them. Bread and Puppet performers will engage in a half-day workshop with Saint Michaels students prior to the performance and will incorporate student actors into the evening show.
