It's the holiday season, and that means it's time for Thistle Theatre's holiday show. This year we present "The Gingerbread Boy" at various locations throughout the Seattle area.

Our story takes place in Candyland, where all the world's sweets are made.  I play Sweetie, the candy cooker.  She makes lollipops and gumdrops and cookie icing.

I also play Pepper Mint, the shipping coordinator of Candyland, who must chase down the naughty gingerbread boy when he steals the knob that controls all the sweet treats made in Candyland.

All voices and songs are performed live by me and fellow puppeteers Brian Stabile and Ben Burris. We use  a variety of puppet styles including Japanese Bunraku-style and rod puppets to tell and sing this take on the traditional tale.

The script and songs were written by Jean Enticknap and Sue Ennis. Jean also directed this lively production.

This show is recommended for ages 3 and up.

The shows are at Sunset Hill Community Club in Ballard at 7:30 on the evening of November 30, and at 1 and 3 p.m. on December 1 and 2. The address is 3003 NW 66th Street.

Performances at Bellevue Youth Theatre  are at 2 and 4 p.m. on December 15 and 16.  That address is 16661 Northup Way, Bellevue, WA 98008
