A Christmas Carol

NOVEMBER 8 - DECEMBER 4, 2019

 

From the early days of their artistic enterprise, the Simpich family has drawn upon the wealth of Charles Dickens’s warm and whimsical Yuletide settings and characters to celebrate the season.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL’s timeless narrative is brought to life with sparkling vitality on the Simpich stage with over twenty handmade marionette actors animated by Dickens himself.
In this original adaptation by puppeteer David Simpich, Ebenezer Scrooge is launched into and transformed by a night of delightful and poignant Christmas remembrances and foreboding forecasts. The outcome is both a continuing inspiration and celebration of the Promise of the Season.

The Puppet Maker: A Story of Christmas

December 14 - 31, 2019

 

“This journey to Bethlehem—which began last April... The reading and the thinking, the carving and jointing, the painting and sewing... The anticipation! And the disappointment. It has all been a rehearsal...for the song. The heartfelt Christmas Anthem!”

 

In this solo theatre presentation, puppeteer David Simpich portrays a village woodcarver painstakingly preparing a marionette Nativity scene for a local Christmas music festival.  The audience steps inside his workshop on the eventful Christmas Eve night before the pageant as he applies the finishing touches to his figures of the Wise Men, Mary and Joseph. Utilizing a cast of nearly twenty hand-carved marionettes created by Simpich, the play weaves the old and new to create a warm, startling and reverent celebration of the Christmas Story.
