Calico Children's Theatre

At Calico Children's Theatre, our goal is to provide an experience where a child's imagination can soar while maintaining quality and affordable pricing for our audiences. We hope that each visit to the theatre sparks curiosity in our youth to educate and incorporate the lessons they learn into their everyday lives. There's nothing like witnessing the light in a child's eyes as the curtains open and the stage comes alive!

Behind every great Man-in-Red, is a great Woman-in-red! She's making a list and checking it twice! When the holiday is threatened by a severe outbreak of the North Pole Pox two days before Christmas, and Santa himself is quarantined, it's Mrs. Claus to the rescue! She has less than 24 hours to figure out how to pull off the best Christmas ever. Good thing she has a team of elves and Christmas creatures to work out the details.  With traditional carols and a world-premiere script (commissioned by The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati), this holiday musical is about leadership, goodwill and teamwork. Recommended for grades K-5. 

This program made possible with the generous support of our 2019-20 sponsors.
