Merry Christmas from the Pelican Playhouse!
The Pelican’s are celebrating the birth of our Savior with our very own Pelican Puppeteers performing Christmas puppet jokes and riddles, the “12 Days of Christmas in Florida” and the one-act play, “The Christmas Apple.”
The play centers on the children of the shepherds who went to see the child that very first Christmas, after the angels had first made them “sore afraid,” and then directed them to the stable and the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. The bible tells us that after seeing the Christ Child the shepherds returned to their village and related everything they had seen. Presumably, they told their children as well. Our story picks up the shepherd’s children on a journey of their own to Bethlehem, to see for themselves, and to bring their gifts for the baby and his family, and in the process learn the true meaning of Christmas.
The onetime only performance is Monday afternoon, December 23rd at 12:30 PM in the Miami Springs Community Center’s Rebeca Sosa Theater, 1401 Westward Drive, Miami Springs, 33166.
Admission is free.
