The Mitten: A Ukrainian Folktale

When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he goes on without realizing that it is missing. One by one, woodland animals find the mitten and crawl in; first a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others. Join us to hear what happens next!

The Polar Bear Who Saved Christmas
(Read by Santa in Thursday sessions)

ASL Interpretation Thurs., Dec. 15

We are pleased to announce that Santa will be accompanied by ASL interpreter Jennifer Flaggs for both performances on Thurs., Dec. 15. Jennifer has been an interpreter for twenty-five years and currently instructs and coordinates the ASL-English Interpreting Program at the Community College of Allegheny County. She earned her Master's degree in Special Education from the University of Pittsburgh, where she received her ASL training from the late (and great) Karen Walkney Mrdjenovich.  She currently splits her time between Pittsburgh and the New River Gorge where she works in season as a rock-climbing guide and can be found in the wild often with her dog, Yogi.
