The Troll That Stole Hanukkah By WonderSpark Puppets

It's a Hanukkah emergency! When a fuzzy troll steals the Rabbi's menorah, it's up to the most unlikely person to overcome monstrous challenges to get it back. This extremely silly Hanukkah tale is about mindfulness, making friends, empathy, and problem solving.

All ages welcome, recommended for 3+

Written, directed and performed by Chad Williams with puppets by Lindsey 'Z.' Briggs.

A special Hanukkah-themed illuminated mobile art exhibit Brighter Ignited will be on display outside Puppet Showplace Theater on December 17 from 3:30 - 6:30 pm, presented by the Jewish Arts Collaborative.


Sat Dec 17 | 1:00 pm & 3:00 pm

Sun Dec 18 | 10:30 am & 1:00 pm
