About Bread and Puppet Theater The Bread and Puppet Theater is a politically active puppet theater, founded by Peter Schumann in New York City in 1963 and based in Glover, Vermont since 1974.
The name Bread and Puppet is derived from the theater’s practice of sharing its sourdough rye with the audience, and from its central principle that art is as basic as bread. The Bread and Puppet Theater participates locally in parades and is active at many statehouse marches in Montpelier.
Peter Schumann, Bread and Puppet’s director, was born in 1934 in Silesia. Schumann was a sculptor and dancer in Germany before moving to the United States in 1961. In 1963 he founded Bread and Puppet Theater and in 1970 moved to Vermont, eventually settling in the Northeast Kingdom in Glover where the company still performs outdoor circuses and pageants all summer long.
