In addition to the holiday stories, Mrs. Claus will perform several puppet routines where the puppets will come to life, talk, and even sing a holiday song. This is a great, non-religious program for the holiday season that ties in with the theatrical arts - puppetry, ventriloquism, and theater.

  • Too Many Toys: A Christmas Story by Betty Clark
