Aurora Theatre assembles the best children’s performers in the region, bringing them to Gwinnett County for the series Aurora Children’s Playhouse. This holiday season will be double the fun with an expanded schedule including performances both at 10 and 11 a.m. three Saturday’s in December leading up to Christmas. Parents are always looking out for inexpensive activities that are fun for the whole family; Aurora Children’s Playhouse has them.

Holiday Performances

On December 8, 2012 audience favorite Wendy Bennett makes her holiday arrival with Sing Along with Santa. Join Wendy, her lovely voice and big green puppet as they ring in the Christmas season. You’ll hear traditional Christmas music as well as some you may have never heard before, including: Christmas Time’s A Comin’, Jolly Old St. Nicholas, Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town, Jingle Bells and the stories The Mitten and The Shoemaker and The Elves. Come to see singing, guitar playing, storytelling, sled riding, jingle bell playing and even be a part of the show as there will be lots of opportunity for audience participation.

Back for an eighth straight year with the holiday classic ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, Aurora welcomes Piccadilly Puppets on Saturday, December 15, 2012. The story is told from the point of view of a mouse that was actually there and saw what really happened on that very special night. Having entertained generations of families with puppet shows for over 30 years, it’s no surprise they continue to play to sell-out crowds.

On December 22, 2012 the Aurora Children’s Playhouse holiday finale will be Trouble in Toyland. There’s big trouble at the North Pole this year! A blizzard is on the way, the elves are on strike, and Rudolph has a runny nose! Will Christmas have to be cancelled? Last year’s world premiere puppet show returns with “That Puppet Guy”– Lee Bryan.
