7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Sandglass Theater’s “A Rafter of Crankies” is back at Green Mountain Orchard for the 3rd consecutive year! Performances will take place on Friday November 24 at 7:30 PM and on Saturday November 25 at 5 PM and 7:30 PM at Green Mountain Orchards. Once again, the Crankies event will be part of the Putney Craft Tour on Thanksgiving Weekend.

Heating will run before and between shows; the temperature in the building should be somewhere between outdoors and cozy. Bring layers! Cider and baked snacks will be available by donation.
Crankies are panoramic scrolls that are “cranked” on the handles of a box that the scrolls wind through. The effect is like watching the analog ancestor of a movie, or a comic strip that combines with a song or story. Together they create a performance that is charming, and often wildly funny or strikingly haunting. Although they are often associated with Appalachian folk tradition, today’s crankies embrace cultural, musical, and artistic expressions that are contemporary and as unpredictable as the weather!

Tickets are $20.00 General Admission,$18.00 for Seniors/Students, $16.00 for Seniors/Students/EBT or Medicaid card holders and can be purchased online or at the door. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
