Santa finds the Mouse “stirring” in ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

Choose from three fun holiday shows:

‘TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS 
Piccadilly takes a few liberties with the classic holiday poem penned by Clement C. Moore more than 100 years ago. In this version, performed with hand puppets, children will get the real story of that night from a mouse who was an eyewitness to the whole affair. It’s a merry tale with lots of silly twists and turns to entertain and amuse children of all ages. PreK-5, families, or senior citizens.

FOXY CHRISTMAS
A tale of Christmas spirit and friendship. This endearing Christmas story is about a hungry fox and a lonely bunny, and how they find that, for them, the true meaning of Christmas is friendship. Although there’s no mention of any reindeer in the forest, Santa Claus still manages to make an appearance—much to the delight of the audience!

 

PICCADILLY HOLIDAY   A secular, holiday-themed variety show. The show will feature several pieces including a rod and hand puppet version of “The Nutcracker”, an ice-skating marionette, and an original hand puppet story of an elf that comes to Atlanta to escape the North Pole snow. The benefit of this show is that it is adaptable to whatever length the presenter needs. All ages.

Piccadilly Puppets hopes to raise $2000 in 24 hours to help us produce a new show (and keep the lights on at the same time). This is YOUR chance to make a real difference, right here in our community.

Of course, you don’t HAVE to donate to Piccadilly Puppets. There are hundreds of other wonderful organizations taking part, too.

Just click to donate on our page: https://gagivesday.org/c/GGD/a/piccadillypuppets

The site is actually up & running all year long, so it doesn’t have to be done on Wednesday.
