Christmas Shows Begin Dec. 5

This is the year we resurrect our marionette Nativity play based on the Gospels of Saint Matthew and Saint Luke. We love doing this show and we hope that our audiences come back to see this production because it gently reminds us of God's love for humankind and what the real meaning of Christmas is all about. While this show has its message in the story of Jesus' birth it also has some humorous twists as well when the wolf comes out to chase the lamb, Herod's reaction at the end of the story, and when the wolf and lamb play together just before the curtain comes down as a reminder of the passage in Isaiah 65:25 - "The wolf and the lamb will feed together . . . says the Lord". We hope that all our friends have the opportunity to experience a blessed and happy Christmas.

(Note: The nativity scene photo was created 2 years ago by Connor McCarthy, a former Fever River Puppeteer, now a senior (I think!) at UW-Platteville. As part of a photography class, he took photos of the puppets and manipulated them in photoshop for some interesting effects. Notice that the puppets have "strings" that are like rays of light coming from heaven.)
