A Season for the Child: 2011-12

The Shoemaker and The Elves...............2 AND 7 p.m..Dec. 10, 2011*

When a kindly shoemaker gives his only remaining pair of shoes to a cold and hungry beggar woman, he finds his good deed rewarded in very unexpected ways. Based on the tale by the Brothers Grimm, this beloved, warm-hearted story is perfect for the holiday season, reminding us that where we find goodness, generosity and hope, anything is possible.

Puss In Boots............................................................January 28, 2012*

Before he was Shrek's swashbuckling sidekick, Puss was one of Mother Goose's best-loved story time characters. Find out how this frisky feline's legend began as he leads his master on a journey to find his way in the world. The clever Puss uses cunning and intelligence to overcome an ogre, befriend a king and win the heart of the fair princess, gaining his master and himself a life of ease and happiness.

Rumpelstiltskin............................................................March 17, 2012*

Adapted by local playwright John Harvey, Curtains Up Theatre Co.-based in Edwardsville-Collinsville-brings us this beloved Brothers Grimm tale of the impish creature who spins straw into gold for a young woman but exacts a very high price for doing so.
