Christmas Open House To Feature Madcap Puppets' “The Enchanted World”

"The Middletown Arts Center’s Christmas Open House will provide unique entertainment and gift opportunities. For youngsters, the Madcap Puppets return with their play entitled “The Enchanted World” and a Puppet Making Workshop. For adults, gift opportunities include one-of-a-kind items that include cards, jewelry, pottery, paintings, prints and more; all created by MAC students and instructors.

This enjoyable event will take place from 10 AM until 3 PM on December 14th. The Madcap Puppet performance will begin at 10:30 AM and is free to the public. Very informal seating is on a first-come first-served basis. The Puppet Making Workshop, recommended for youth in grades 1 through 5, will immediately follow the puppet play and a fee of $5 per child applies to cover materials. Pre-registration by calling the Center (513/424-2417) is required to ensure sufficient supplies.

“The Enchanted World” is about Silas B. Thistlewig, the greatest traveling showman who comes to town in his covered wagon, spellbinds each audience with classic fairy tales he has gathered from around the world. This time, he must compete with a prickly local peddler, Beula Bugbottom, for the town's attention. Silas weaves his enchanting stories together with giant puppets and audience participation to win over the crowd.
The Christmas Open House events are in collaboration with Downtown Middletown Inc.; the Madcap Puppets are presented by ArtsWave of Cincinnati and is sponsored by the Jacob G. Schmidlapp Trusts, Fifth Third Bank Trustee.
