Halloween Magic Show
by Arthur Atsma

In what has become an Aurora Children’s Playhouse holiday tradition, the Halloween Magic Show returns for a 6th year with Atlanta magician Arthur Atsma. The Halloween Magic Show will be presented the Saturday before Halloween, October 25. Arthur Atsma will amaze and amuse folks of all ages with a show filled with captivating sleight of hand magic, audience interaction and comedy. It’s not necessarily magic, but Arthur Atsma has a way of making tickets disappear, therefore reservations are strongly recommended for this popular performance.

Santa’s Missing Mail
by All Hands Productions

Ominous Crook and his sidekick, Skellmutt, are two dastardly bad-guys who are out to stop Christmas by stealing Santa Claus’ mail. You’ll meet some panicked elves, a wise-cracking reindeer, a dim-witted superhero and Santa, himself. The audience will also give David’s friend, Fitzgerald, some help in writing a letter to St. Nick. This production, written by David Stephens, debuted in 1998 and is being brought back for the holiday season. This 40-minute show incorporates moving-mouth hand puppets and is guaranteed to bring a smile.

Twas the Night Before Christmas
by Piccadilly Puppets

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. Having entertained generations of families with puppet shows for over 30 years, it’s no surprise that Piccadilly Puppets continue to play to sell-out crowds.
