Tales of Christmas Past is a new show where A Wonderful Adventure reanimates three traditional Christmas stories!
Old Father Christmas by Juliana Horatia Ewing: a beautiful tale about two children who meet an old man who
resembles the picture of Old Father Christmas from their picture book. Could it really be him?
The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore: This enchanting classic poem read by many the night before Christmas captures the special magic of the festive season.
A Kidnapped Santa Claus by L. Frank Baum, famous as the creator of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, it has been called “one of Baum’s most beautiful stories.
These stories have been woven into a dramatic performance with beautiful storytelling, puppetry and Christmas cheer for all the family!
