Description:

THE TOWN THAT FOUGHT HATE is a captivating production based on Dr. Cohn's award-winning book, "The Christmas Menorah: How a Town Fought Hate." It recounts the moving story of a community of people who refuse to remain silent when their friends and neighbors become victims of hate.

All of the shows by Catskill Puppet Theatre present an example of quality puppetry accompanied by original music and stories designed to entertain as well as instruct. Each show we present uses full sets, large scale animated rod puppets, professional sound and lighting, and a healthy dose of participation and imagination from the audience. Each show has a different theme and gentle lesson while exhibiting the multi-disciplinary nature of the art form.

As always, each puppet theatre show presented to elementary age children is of high quality, which is the hallmark of the Catskill Puppet Theatre. It carries on in living tradition of the old traveling puppet troupes.
