Hol­i­day pup­pet show sched­uled at li­brary

The Standard Journal - - LIFESTYLE -

Rock­mart Li­brary, lo­cated at 316 N. Pied­mont Av­enue, plans to host a Hol­i­day Pup­pet Show with a spe­cial ap­pear­ance from Santa on Satur­day, Dec. 5.

Area chil­dren will have the op­por­tu­nity to sit with Santa and share their Christ­mas wishes. He will be avail­able from 9:30 a.m. un­til 11 a.m. and par­ents are wel­come to take pic­tures.

The pup­pet show “Santa’s Miss­ing Mail” will fol­low promptly at 11 a.m. This 40 minute show tells the story of Omi­nous Crook and his side­kick, Skell­mutt, 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. 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 is be­ing brought back for the hol­i­day sea­son. It in­cor­po­rates mov­ing-mouth hand pup­pets and is guar­an­teed to bring a smile.

This fam­ily event is free to the pub­lic thanks to a gen­er­ous do­na­tion from Meg­gitt of Rock­mart.
