Hartland Community Arts presents The Modern Times Theater. Join us for this special matinee performance of their all-ages compact cardboard comedy show, The Baffo Box Show, at Damon Hall on Saturday, March 16, at 3:00 pm. The Baffo Box show will be puppeteered by Justin Lander, a Bread and Puppet alum and co-founder of The Modern Times Theater. We invite you to bring your whole family to the show to spend some time together in community with your neighbors enjoying old-fashioned puppet theater storytelling. We hope this show uplifts you and inspires you.
“A daring work of puppetry and object manipulation, full of beautiful images, junk music sonatas, and Modern Times Theater’s unique brand of all ages comedy, this re-envisioning of classic hand puppet forms is digital entertainment as it was meant to be: two hands, ten fingers, and no camera tricks.”
Our Mission Statement
Hartland Community Arts believes that the arts enrich and vitalize the community. We are a local organization that enjoys a long-standing tradition of cultivating and nurturing artistic expression. Our mission is to sustain and broaden this tradition. We accomplish this by promoting local artists, encouraging youth to become involved in the arts, and sponsoring artistic events of all kinds.
More about us:

A MESSAGE FROM THE HCA BOARD OF DIRECTORS
None of us on the current Board participated years ago when HCA mounted its legendary variety shows. Some of us learned only recently, that HCA fundraised for the original stage lights, the grand piano, the curtains, and the projector screen, and that it mobilized volunteers to paint the interior walls of Damon Hall. What we do know is that today Hartland is a town with a lot of community spirit, thanks to the activities of many community groups, such as HCA. We are working to ensure that Hartland will continue to enjoy the community theater into the future by purchasing additional theatrical lights, and this fundraiser surely will help us achieve that goal. The arts may not fill potholes, but who knows what they may fill?
Thank you for supporting the project, and thank you for supporting the Hartland community.
