The 2014 Winter Sunshine Series of Family Performances at Sandglass Theater in Putney continues on March 8th with the award-winning piece, An Arabian Adventure, by the Tanglewood Marionettes of Massachusetts.
Told with beautifully crafted marionettes in a storybook setting, An Arabian Adventure is a swashbuckling tale set in exotic lands. A Persian prince is thrown into a dungeon because of his love for a beautiful princess. Facing danger at every turn, the courageous prince uses his wits to escape his prison, defeat the diabolical vizier and save the princess from a tragic fate. Tanglewood Marionettes received an UNIMA ‘citation of excellence’ for this piece (one of puppetry’s highest honors!)
“We’re so pleased to have the Tanglewood Marionettes as part of this year’s Winter Sunshine,” says series co-curator Bonny Hall. “We haven’t featured marionettes before, and Tanglewood combines classical marionette technique with a very up-to-date style.”

Dear iPutney readers,
Today 3/5, the State began cutting trees at the proposed park and ride, located just south of the Fire Station. Despite filing an appeal with the State on the Park and Ride, and receiving a court date on May 15th, and agreeing to mediation with the State over the size of the project, and filing a request for a summary judgement, the state has simply gone ahead with their project.
I am now requesting that everyone concerned begin writing letters to the Governors office, making phone calls is good too.
Executive Office of Governor Peter Shumlin, 109 State Street, Pavilion, Montpelier, VT 05609
Phone: 802 828-3333
Talking points - 83 space project is too large for small town, with 6 lights on all night, out of character for a small town, no sidewalk to project. I will file an injunction to halt operations but this may take weeks. In the mean time I am counting on your support to alert the governor that this is not the right project for Putney.

The Putney Trails Project aims to capture an extensive list of the existing places to walk, hike, and bike in Putney and provide a map/guide for Putney residents. The first step is to collect information from Putney residents about their current interest, knowledge and use of these existing walk/hike/bike routes. Please take this brief online survey and help our project!

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present an evening of swing, honky-tonk and fiddle music by The Sweetback Sisters and Elixir at Next Stage on Friday, March 7 at 7:30 pm.
The Sweetback Sisters forge their own sound by delivering arrangements that combine the soul of classic ‘40s and ‘50s-era country music with an undeniably contemporary edge. The rollicking country, swing, honky-tonk and old-time music of Emily Miller (vocals, fiddle, guitar), Zara Bode (vocals, guitar), Stefan Amidon (drums, vocals), Jesse Milnes (fiddle, guitar, vocals), Ryan Hommel (electric guitar) and Peter Bitenc (acoustic bass) is as infectious as it is heartbreaking. Their charismatic charm harkens back to the golden era of both the silver screen cowgirl and the ersatz cowboy stars of local UHF TV kiddie shows. That whimsical exterior is wrapped around a core of deeply felt love for traditional country music styles and a palpable joy in playing and singing together.
