INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED BREAD & PUPPET THEATER

TO PERFORM at PARK HILL ORCHARD in EASTHAMPTON

ONE DAY ONLY!   Wednesday, September 12th at 5:30 p.m.

 

Bread and Puppet Presents The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus, 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, September 12th, at Park Hill Orchard, 82 Park Hill Road. Easthampton, Massachusetts.

Admission by donation, $10 - $25 suggested, no one turned away for lack of funds. Grass seating. Or bring a blanket or lawn chair.

Bread and Puppet Theater returns to Park Hill Orchard with The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus, a show that explains and teaches riot and rebellion against intolerable situations with the help of state of the art paper-maché weaponry and the appropriate riotous Bread and Puppet Brass Band.

B&P director, Peter Schumann, says of The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus: “Tigers roar, apes drum their chests, horses neigh, and celestial grasshoppers teach ICE agents the basics steps of grasshopper rebellion dancing. A paradise investigation team analyses the earthlings’ relationship to paradise, while major representatives of Mother Earth attend a festive Puerto Rican dance of liberation from natural and political disaster.”

Bread and Puppet’s performance at Park Hill Orchard kicks off the second week of a 14-week tour across the country with The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus and The Basic Byebye Show.

After the performance Bread and Puppet will serve its famous free sourdough rye bread with aioli, and Bread and Puppet’s “Cheap Art” – books, posters, postcards, pamphlets and banners from the Bread and Puppet Press – will be for sale.
