Big Annie - Saturday December 9th, 2023 at 12pm

Tall tale is right! Annie is a larger than life heroine - a Creole flatboat captain who uses her amazing strength, and the help of the audience and some animal friends, to pull a boat full of toys through a terrible storm one Holiday Eve long ago. Big Annie is an interactive musical puppet show that also includes a Winter Holiday Sing-Along, with songs for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Three Kings Day.
