Catamount Arts' EPIC Music program provides intensive instruction in violin, viola and cello for students in grades 2-8. Under the direction of Jason Bergman, Lewis Botelho-Gomes, and Marshall Meade, students learn the fundamentals of music theory and playing an instrument in a string orchestra. Students with violin or other musical experience as well as those with no musical training are welcome to join the program.
Inspired by the global El Sistema movement of youth development and social change through music, EPIC Music is intensive, rigorous, and inclusive. We are grateful to our programming partners this year for providing space that allows for social distancing: St. Johnsbury School, Grace Methodist Church, and Union Baptist Church.

An original show written by the ensemble that is a fictitious Vermont town select board meeting held on Zoom where they are voting on whether or not they should replace the town monument to an old Vermont governor with a dubious history with a new monument honoring the women's suffrage movement. The town members (audience) get to vote but not before they are taken on a trippy breakout room tour of different interpretations of the suffrage movement.

“Watching Modern Times Theater founders Rose and Justin perform is inspiring on many fronts. They are confident and consummate professionals who know their art well. They are wonderfully creative—using their multiple skills to craft original content in their own inimitable style. They are hysterically historic—utilizing the traditional arts of puppetry, theater, vaudeville, mime, music, and storytelling with wry humor.” -- Rob Mermin, founder Circus Smirkus
Modern Times Theater is bringing its inimitable and wildly popular SATURDAY STOREFRONT TRILOGY to downtown St. Johnsbury for the first three weekends of March. An empty storefront will be converted into a pop up theater, featuring an epic Punch and Judy puppet melodrama in three parts. It’s Saturday morning cartoons, LIVE!
Each weekend features a new installment of “The Perils of Mr. Punch”, chronicling the troubles and travails of puppetry’s first couple- Punch and Judy. These shows feature brand new puppets and characters, as well as classic puppetry gags and tricks. The audience is invited to write letters to Mr. Punch, which will inform the creation of the next episode. Each week includes raffle prizes, delicious refreshments, live music, and a hilarious all-ages show. The atmosphere is lively and friendly, with pre-show music from a collection of vintage 78 rpm records, played on a hand-cranked gramophone (audience participation required). Both children and adults leave with faces and bellies sore from laughing.
Modern Times Theater delights crowds with a fresh take on the entertainment styles of the past, including novelty music, handmade puppetry, and classic comedy. Husband and wife performers Justin Lander and Rose Friedman have been adapting and updating Punch and Judy shows, and performing original variety acts with Vermont Vaudeville for over a decade.
Jaw dropping artistry and grace.

“THE PEKING ACROBATS push the envelope of human possibility, combining agility and grace in remarkable feats of pure artistry.” - Clive Davis, New York Post
For the last thirty two years, THE PEKING ACROBATS have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs and display their technical prowess at such arts as trick-cycling, precision tumbling, juggling, somersaulting, and gymnastics. They push the limits of human ability, defying gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control.
THE PEKING ACROBATS are often accompanied by live musicians who skillfully play traditional Chinese instruments; the time-honored Chinese music coalesces with high-tech special effects and awe-inspiring acrobatic feats, creating an exuberant entertainment event with the festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival.
Since their founding in 1986, THE PEKING ACROBATS have been featured on numerous television shows including Nickelodeon’s Unfabulous, Ellen’s Really Big Show (hosted by Ellen DeGeneres), The Wayne Brady Show, That’s Incredible, ABC’s Wide World of Sports, and NBC’s Ring In The New Year Holiday Special.
THE PEKING ACROBATS set the world record for the Human Chair Stack on FOX Network’s Guinness Book Primetime television show in 1999: they balanced six people precariously atop six chairs twenty one feet up in the air without safety lines, astounding audiences with their bravery and dexterity.
THE PEKING ACROBATS have also made their way onto the silver screen – company members were featured in Steven Soderbergh’s hit film Ocean’s Eleven playing alongside Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and George Clooney.
