Holiday puppet show scheduled at library
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.
