Our beloved holiday favorite returns this Saturday, December 8 with two new stories after a smash success last year. Children of all ages are once again cordially invited to dress up and enjoy a spot of hot cocoa with CCT’s friends from the English Lake District at the The Beatrix Potter Holiday Tea Party. Spend the day with beloved literary characters as they delight audiences in this interactive trunk and puppet show. Children and parents are invited to the stage following the performance to pull levers and turn cranks, revealing images that surprise and delight.

Guests exit into the lobby, which will transform into a Victorian-style dining hall where they will enjoy cocoa and cookies, beautiful decor, and have the rare opportunity to meet and pose for photos with the cast. This family-friendly event is a delight for theatre lovers of all ages!

Only a few tickets remain! Get tickets now!

Learn more and meet the creative team.
