GLOVER â€“ The Bread and Puppet Theater kicked off its season with various theatrical acts Saturday.
Actors started by waking up the guard of the puppet museum. The big piece of the day included Bread and Puppet theater members and members from Concordia University Montreal.
Bread and Puppet Director Peter Schuman founded the theater group on New York Cityâ€™s Lower Eastside in 1963.Â â€śWe combined weekly bread baking with theater,â€ť said Schuman.
That tradition of giving bread during the performances continued Saturday.
