SOLD OUT!

Artist and puppeteer Robin McCahill returns to the Carriage House at White Memorial for one performance of the Hans Christian Anderson tale of friends lost and found, visits to distant lands, travels through changing seasons, and encounters with strange and exotic characters. McCahill’s whimsical troupe of hand-felted marionettes tells the story. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be visiting from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. They will escort guests to the Mott-Van Winkle classroom in their horse drawn wagon. While Santa receives guests in the classroom, Mrs. Claus will lead a carol sing around the bonfire. An embarrassment of sweets and cups of velvety hot chocolate sweeten the day.  Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive in their horse drawn wagon at 1:00 p.m. Performance: 3:00 P.M. in the Carriage House.  This beautiful program is made possible by an anonymous donor.

There will be a Museum Open House from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.! The Gift Shop is full of wonderful stocking stuffers and one-of-a-kind gifts made in Connecticut!

ADMISSION: A donation of warm socks, mittens, gloves, or hats of any size or color and a non-perishable food item for the pantry at FISH, Torrington CT. You must call and make a reservation: 860-567-0857 or register online.
