Despite all the rainy weather today, we are happy to kick off our Summertime Saturday Puppet Show Series on Saturday, July 10 at 11a.m. with Judy Saves the Day by Sarah Nolen in Betsy Paterson Square!
After being pushed around for over 400 years, the famous hand-puppet heroine Judy has had enough! Cheer her on as she goes on a quest for respect, justice, and a well-deserved nap. Puppeteer Sarah Nolen delivers an astonishing one-woman performance in this modern feminist interpretation of the traditional Punch and Judy puppet show. Audiences young and old will laugh, cry, yell, and gasp in response to this highly-interactive, hilarious, hand-crafted farce.
Admission is free, but donations are encouraged.
Per UConn health and safety policies, masks are required at all times for all attendees and staff ages two and up. For safety, six feet of space will be required between seated family groups. Please note that public restrooms are not available.
Chairs will not be provided, so groups are encouraged to bring waterproof seating (just in case the grass is still wet!). Seating space will be first come, first served. This show will not be streamed virtually.
This performance is co-sponsored by the Mansfield Downtown Partnership.
