FREE Puppet Show
1:00 pm, NJSM Auditorium

Join us in the auditorium at 1:00pm for a FREE show from The Crabgrass Puppet Theater: Mr. Punch’s Christmas Carol, starring Mr. Punch as Scrooge! Outrageous holiday hilarity, full of ghosts, giggles, geese, and Tiny Tim, too! Beautifully crafted puppets tell the tale of the man who hated Christmas and put profits before people. Laughter abounds when Scrooge changes his tune from "Bah, Humbug!" to "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" as he finds the true holiday spirit.
