Sandglass Theater (SGT) is dedicated to the arts of theatre and puppetry as a means to explore contemporary issues, inspire dialogue, and spark wonder. We achieve this by creating original ensemble performance and collaborations, presenting diverse theater artists, producing events that serve our communities, and teaching our art. We are committed to being a bridge in our local, national, and international communities for artistic and social development. We will inspire new generations of diverse artists and audiences to further embrace puppetry and theatre as thriving art forms that seek truth and a broader perspective, generate compassion, and celebrate the human spirit.
The Sandglass Theater maintains our commitment to a number of core values, including:
● The belief that puppetry is a unique theater form that affirms the human spirit through images, metaphors, and a sense of play.
● The importance of the ensemble process, the artistic exchange of ideas, collaboration as a means of developing and sustaining our field, the responsibility of creating and teaching theater, and a respect for the culture and traditions of our art form.
● Our value and respect for our audiences, and the process of engaging them in civil dialogue, shared play, and critical response. This includes physical, economic, and social accessibility to all performances and events.
● Our high value on justice and diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, and disability, and we strongly support the safety of those fleeing violence in other countries and here in our own.
Sandglass Theatre produces the biannual Puppets in the Green Mountains international festival drawing thousands of attendees, the annual Winter Sunshine Children’s Series, Voices of Community, and our biannual signature fundraiser Puppets in Paradise. We tour our original productions nationally and internationally for 7 - 10 weeks per year and serve as host to touring puppetry ensembles at our home in Putney, Vermont.
