Bread & Puppet Cantastoria Workshop

Join us on Friday, March 25, from 2:00-5:00 p.m. for a Bread & Puppet Cantastoria workshop at the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts, Room 322.

One of the oldest non-profit political theater companies in the U.S., Bread & Puppet presents its famed hands-on Cantastoria Workshop. Participants will create theatre involving the narration of pictures using song, movement, text and puppetry.

Bread & Puppet Theater is an internationally celebrated company that champions a visually rich, street-theater brand of performance art filled with music, dance and slapstick. Its shows are political and spectacular, with huge puppets made of paper maché and cardboard. Founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on New York City's Lower East Side, the theater has been based in the North East Kingdom of Vermont since the early 1970s.

Space is limited to 20 participants: Email Andy Colpitts at for reservations.

The event is free and open to the Cornell Community. 

Campus visitors and members of the public must adhere to Cornell’s public health requirements for events, which include providing proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test. For latest updates, see

Bread & Puppet will present a new show, Finished Waiting, on Thursday, March 24, at 7:00 p.m. at the Community School of Music and Arts. For more information, visit:
