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 wisecracking reindeer, a dim-witted superhero, and Santa himself. Written by former Sesame Street puppeteer David Stephens, the show has been a holiday tradition for many Atlantans since 1998. Santa’s Missing Mail returns for its second year as a part of Aurora Children’s Playhouse.

Twas the Night Before Christmas
by Piccadilly Puppets

Back for a tenth straight year with the holiday classic ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, Aurora welcomes Piccadilly Puppets on Saturday, December 13. The story is told from the point of view of a mouse that was actually there and saw what really happened on that very special night. Having entertained generations of families with puppet shows for over 30 years, it’s no surprise they continue to play to sell-out crowds.

Trouble in Toyland
by Lee Bryan, That Puppet Guy

On December 20, the Aurora Children’s Playhouse holiday finale will be Trouble in Toyland. There’s big trouble at the North Pole this year! A blizzard is on the way, the elves are on strike, and Rudolph has a runny nose! Will Christmas have to be cancelled? Last year’s puppet show returns with “That Puppet Guy”—Lee Bryan.
