It's the holiday season, and that means it's time for Thistle Theatre's holiday show. This year we bring back "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 Alex Cantrell 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.

Performances at Bellevue Youth Theatre  are at 2 and 4 p.m. on November 29, 30, and December 6, and 7.  That address is 16661 Northup Way, Bellevue, WA 98008 
The shows are at Sunset Hill Community Club in Ballard at 1 and 3 p.m. on December 13 and 14. The address is 3003 NW 66th Street.
