Workhouse Holiday Children's Performances make the season bright!

Holiday magic is in full swing with Children's Theater performances at the Workhouse!

For children the holidays are full of magic and wonder, but as adults we tend to stop believing in Santa and get ourselves wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of preparing for the holidays. Two new holiday performances at the Workhouse offer both kids and their parents an opportunity to take a break from the shopping and spend some time together rediscovering what the holidays really mean.

A Magical Christmas is storybook tale brought to life onstage by live actors and actresses. The story is set in a little town in Maine called Believe.  A little girl named Joy moves to the town of Believe to live with her grandfather and notices something strange about this little town. Santa hasn’t stopped there for many years—in fact, he doesn’t even know that it exists! Joy’s grandfather decides to do something about it and make sure that this year’s Christmas will be the most magical ever! This performance by Mestey Films Productions is perfect for children of all ages with a running time of 75 minutes with one intermission.

Drumming with Dishes: The Holiday Edition is an interactive, nonverbal musical performance geared towards toddlers and very young children. Follow the journey of an adventurous toddler and her imaginary friend as they cook up music and fun! Pasta boxes become shakers and bowls turn into drums, transforming an ordinary kitchen into a magical holiday musical experience. Children will have the opportunity to interact with the performance by helping make music offstage during the performance. Laugh and play along during this whimsical children’s performance!  Running time is 35 minutes.
