Theater of the Apes Returns With NECROMANCERS OF THE PUBLIC DOMAIN - DENNISON'S CHRISTMAS BOOK (1921)
Each month, Theater of the Apes plucks a long forgotten volume from the shelves of the New York Society Library to resurrect as Necromancers of the Public Domain, a 1-night-only NYC variety show.
Up next: Dennison's Christmas Book: Suggestions for Christmas, New Years, & Twelfth Night Parties (1921) - a pamphlet promoting crepe paper as an ideal substance for all your holiday decorating, wrapping, craft and pageant costume needs.
Hunting for the North Pole
Select a corner, doorway or stair post for the pole. Blindfold each child, turn him around three times, and tell him to find the pole. A cornball, wrapped in white tissue, would be a good "snowball" prize.
