Thistle Theatre presents the “Gingerbread Boy”

Picture of Snowman

Every child’s dream come true – a magical world of candy, cookies and ice cream.  Ollie the Oven bakes cakes and cookies, Bill the Chill makes ice cream treats and Sweetie, a copper kettle, cooks up candy and chocolate confections. When too much spice is poured into the batter, out pops a mischievous Gingerbread Boy who stops the

production of holiday goodies. Pepper Mint, a shipping clerk, runs after the Gingerbread Boy on a chase though Candyland. The chase takes them through Candy Cane Lane, past a Snow Man in the Icicle Alps and into the Soda Swamp inhabited by the Gummy Gator.  The traditional story told with an original twist.

A talented ensemble of puppeteers, Alex Cantrell, Ben Burris, and Gina Wilhelm performs all character voices and songs live in a production directed by Jean Enticknap with music and songs by Sue Ennis.   Funded in part by 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax.
