Thistle Theatre presents: “Merry Chris Mouse”

MCM Bed Bouncing Time

Merry Chris Mouse

Thistle Theatre, a puppet theatre for families, presents “Merry Chris Mouse”, an original heartwarming story of sharing at holiday time.  A brown mouse family, homeless on Christmas Eve, moves into the wall of a child’s playroom. Dismayed at the sight of their disheveled home, mouse twins Christine and Christopher scamper into the child’s room to scavenge.  While exploring, they discover a tiny white mouse in a cage…plans for a rescue ensue! The story is about overcoming hardships, helping others and working together.  Jean Enticknap and Sue Ennis wrote the show featuring Ennis’ delightful music and songs including, “Carving the Christmas Cheese”. Ben Burris, Amy Escobar and Gina Wilhelm are puppeteers in the show under the direction of Jean Enticknap. Funded in part by 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax.
