Thistle Theatre celebrates the holiday season with our original musical “Merry Chris Mouse” at various locations throughout the Seattle area.
This original play tells the story of a poor brown mouse family finding a new home in the walls of a child’s playroom. When they meet a white mouse in a cage, it’s time for a rescue.
I play the mother mouse and Christine, one of two brown mouse twins.
All voices and songs are performed live by me and fellow puppeteers Ben Burris and Amy Escobar. We use tabletom Japanese Bunraku-style puppets to tell and sing this tale.
The script and songs were written by Jean Enticknap and Sue Ennis. The songs include the popular “Carving the Christmas Cheese.”
It also features the song “It’s Christmas Time,” which would later be rewritten for the Lovemongers (a band made of Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart and Sue Ennis).
Jean also directed this lively production.
This show is recommended for ages 3 and up.
The shows are at Sunset Hill Community Club in Ballard at 1 and 3 p.m. on December 12 and 13. The address is 3003 NW 66th Street.
Performances at BYT Ivanhoe Theatre are at 2 and 4 p.m. on December 19 and 20. That address is 16661 Northup Way, Bellevue, WA 98008
