Mitten Madness 12/15/2018 11:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Make cherished family memories this holiday season with a cozy weekend at the Museum & Theatre. Celebrate the winter weather with Jan Brett's The Mitten, a classic story of a surprising shelter that kept stretching to fit each new occupant. Show off your forest animal dance moves, have your face painted, watch Museum & Theatre actors act out the story, and explore forest animal artifacts during this weekend-long celebration.
Looking to spread the spirit of The Mitten? Help us share 150 pairs of mittens with children experiencing homelessness this winter. Give your donation to the Front Desk and watch as our lobby becomes covered with mittens.
The Mitten: An Interactive Play for All Ages 12/15/2018 11:30 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Experience the magic of live theatre as actors from the Museum & Theatre's Main Stage productions bring Jan Brett's The Mitten to life on stage. The cast will tell this classic story of sharing a home and finding a place for each new person who comes along. Get ready to be part of the adventure; help Nicki find his lost mitten or teach Bear the appropriate sneezing technique.
