Children’s Theatre of Charlotte Presents “’Tis the Season”  

Children’s Theatre’s Resident Touring Company, the Tarradiddle Players, bring a beloved favorite home for the holidays with “’Tis the Season”, running December 8-22 in the Wachovia Playhouse. This joyful holiday play celebrates the season with a collage of stories and songs from around the world. Creep softly with the Tomten who guards the farm in his native Sweden , even on the coldest and snowiest of nights. Travel southward with the sun, who keeps her promise to the trees to return in a haunting Cherokee solstice story. And climb into the sleigh with Mrs. Claus, who thinks that Christmas needs a little shaking up! This year, the story of Jacob and his magic dreidle adds a favorite Hannukah tale to the collection.  

“The heart of ‘’Tis the Season’ is the notion of togetherness,” commented director Matt Cosper.  “We come together in the cold of winter to share stories of family traditions, gifts given and received, and the promised return of spring. It’s a warm, cozy – and fun! – experience that our family shares with yours!”  

With plenty of opportunities for audience participation, including everyone’s favorite sing-along version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”, this production is an engaging theatre experience for ages 3 and up. Make “’Tis the Season” part of your family’s holiday traditions.  

“’Tis the Season” stars the 2006-07 Tarradiddle Players company: Robbie Fulton, Leslie Ann Giles, Chaz Pofahl, and Greta Marie Zandstra.
