Helping to make a wish come true for a little girl, a journey through Christmas and a family friendly musical experience.  This weekend is packed with joy!

If you are planning to see How the Grinch Stole Christmas, you will may want to go tonight.  Children’s Theatre Company and the Make-a-Wish Foundation are granting the wish of an adorable little girl.  

Kendall has a congenital heart defect and a chronic lung disorder.  Her wish was to be a part of a Children’s Theatre production. Tonight she will participate in 3 scenes in the first act of How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the finale.  

Grinch is incredible in and of itself, but tonight will be especially heart-warming.

La Natividad has opened this weekend and it’s an interactive theatrical experience.  Travel with Mary and Joseph looking for a place to stay when they have baby Jesus.  

Begin the journey from Los Mojarres in Minneapolis.  Hop over the street to see more at In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre.  Journey through the streets with Mary and Joseph as they knock on doors, looking for a place to stay.  Finally, conclude the journey at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church for a colorful puppetry Nativity and a fiesta.  

In the Heart of the Beast Mask and Puppet Theatre is largely influenced by the Spanish-speaking population and community, and much of this production reflects on the journey of immigration our country has taken.

Vocal Essence is a local choir directed by Philip Brunelle that performs beautiful music that is not the most common choral music on the planet.  And they enjoy themselves greatly.  During the Christmas season, Brunelle gives the gift of great music to kids and families as well. 

He is a fun guy and enjoys himself thoroughly by making a space for the kids to sit on the floor, inviting junior high dancers to perform and directing the entire audience in a rollicking “Twelve Days of Christmas.”
