Theatre Mobile presents  "Tall-Tales from Big-Fib"

SHOW 11:30AM/ DOORS 11:00AM

Paul Strickland and Erika Kate MacDonald just got back from visiting their zany Ain't True & Uncle False, who live in Big-Fib Trailer-Park cul-de-sac.  Big-Fib is WAY down south, down there just off the coast of Factual.  Join Erika and Paul as they tell you some of their favorite Tall-Tales, songs and more in this Family Friendly Fun-tastic show!

 

"Strickland and MacDonald do a great job playing with language, making their time on stage seem fun and light and easier for the audience to enjoy the action on stage.  The music and jokes come together to make... something magical."  5 STARS, Edmonton Sun

 

"Both are clearly having a whale of a time rolling out whimsical songs and theatrical tricks for audiences who recognize the warm humanity snuggled in their fibs.  This is the show we need right now; full of the joy that comes from an eye-crossing, ear-tickling, stretched-past-its-limits whopper."  5 STARS, Winnipeg Free Press

Modern Times Theater presents  "The Perils of Mr Punch"

SHOW 11:30AM/ DOORS 11:00AM

“The Perils of Mr. Punch” follows the troubles and travails of puppetry’s favorite loudmouth, Mr. Punch. Nothing ever goes right-- his dog looks suspiciously like a skunk, his baby doesn’t behave, and crocodiles appear around every corner. The skillfully operated hand puppets are chock full of surprises and tricks, as is the elaborate stage. The show is rounded out with live music played on a variety of instruments, from the ukulele to the bicycle pump. It’s a low-tech old-time spectacle, entertaining to people of all ages: from one to one hundred.

Modern Times Theater has been adapting and updating Punch and Judy shows for over a decade. Co-founders Rose Friedman and Justin Lander are a husband and wife duo, producers for Vermont Vaudeville and alumni of the Bread and Puppet Theater. Parents themselves, they strive to present quality entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.
