NOW SHOWING: THE 3 BEARS HOLIDAY BASH
The Three Bears Holiday Bash
is a variety show that celebrates the holiday season in song, dance and puppetry. This production quickly becomes a comedy of errors when Baby Bear invites Santa to star in Mama and Papa Bear's annual holiday show. The audience also gets to join in on the fun with a “12 days of Christmas” sing-a-long during the performance!
Written and directed by the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre’s longtime Artistic Director, Bruce Cannon, The Three Bears Holiday Bash
draws from the stories of Hanukkah, The Night Before Christmas, and Kwanzaa, making it a great way to get into the holiday spirit!

HISTORY OF THE SWEDISH COTTAGE
The Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre
was imported to the U.S. in 1876 as Sweden’s exhibit for the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia.
The enchanting Swedish architecture and craftsmanship of the structure, suggestive of a model schoolhouse, caught the eye of Fredrick Law Olmsted
, who brought it to Central Park in 1877. READ MORE
