About the Show
Children of all ages are cordially invited to enjoy a spot of tea (or hot cocoa) with CCT’s friends from the English Lake District at the The Beatrix Potter Holiday Tea Party. Spend the day with Peter Rabbit, Mr. Jeremy Fisher and Simpkin the cat as they delight audiences in this interactive trunk and puppet show. Enjoy an elegant tea party, create your own puppets and mini-puppet show and pose for photographs with the cast.

*If you have special seating accommodations, please inform the Box Office 72 hours before your performance.
