Bread and Puppet presents: The Whole Kit and Caboodle Show

August 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Bread & Puppet kicks off its 2024 Summer Season with a new performance, The Whole Kit and Caboodle Show, created by Peter Schumann and company along with a cohort of spring apprentices. The Whole Kit and Caboodle Show runs Sundays June 9th-July 7th at 3 p.m. in the Papier Maché Cathedral at the Bread and Puppet farm, 753 Heights Rd, Glover, VT.

About this show Peter Schumann says, “We, the Whole Kit & Caboodle bread bakers, peace and harmony terrorists and criminal trespassers of the fascist empire offer anti-hospital-bombing calisthenics in the face of the Freedom and Democracy Bullshitters, and precise funeral rites for the collapsing Western Civilization and make our divine paper maché weaponry, as retrieved from the cardboard industry’s available refuse to defeat the capitalist hegemony and celebrate a brand-new humanity with appropriate victory dances and demonstrate our birthright as children of the one and only Mother Dirt, who makes us and unmakes us and now requires our full undivided attention.”

Bread and Puppet’s Cheap Art – books, posters, postcards, pamphlets and banners from the Bread and Puppet Press – will be for sale in the Bread & Puppet Museum Store throughout the event.

Tickets for this and other summer shows are $10 each. We ask that you purchase tickets ahead of time. However, it’s central to our philosophy that our performances are as accessible as possible and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Admission by cash donation for kids 6 and under. You can purchase tickets on our website at

The Whole Kit and Caboodle Show plays Sunday afternoons June 9th through July 7th at 3 p.m.. The Principle of Hope Circus plays at 3 p.m. (sideshows at 2 p.m.) every Saturday and Sunday July 13th through August 31st. All shows at the Bread & Puppet Farm, 753 Heights Rd/Rt. 122 in Glover, VT.
