Melikin Puppets to Perform at Court Street!
Date: Saturday, 2 December, 2017 - Saturday, 2 December, 2017
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
The Melikin Puppets of Bolingbrook, Illinois, present 'The Shoemaker and the Elves' and 'The Night before Christmas' as seen by the family dog. Mel, LaVerne and sons Neal and Jeff Biske, known as the Melikins, live just outside Chicago in Bolingbrook, Illinois. They have toured the country from coast to coast and border to border. Mel has been "puppeting" since his Cub Scout days. The interest grew into a profession when in 1967, Mel and LaVerne formed the Melikin Puppet Theatre. Our own Prayin’ and Praisin’ Puppet Project will be performing 'The First Christmas.' Tickets are $5 per person; Children under 5 are free. They will also be giving a performance at 2:00 p.m. that same Saturday. Get in the Christmas spirit by seeing these delightful presentations.
