Let the holidays begin! Peppermint Bear Show opens


by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Lakewood Theatre Companys annual Holiday Magic Breakfast Theatre opens Dec. 7 with shows at 9 and 11 a.m.

Lakewood Theatre Company will open its annual Holiday Magic Breakfast Theatre production with The Peppermint Bear Show: Seasoned Greetings with shows at 9 and 11 a.m. Dec. 7, 14 and 21. Breakfast is served 30 minutes prior to the show and performers interact with the audience.

The story of the production follows North Pole elves as they prepare for the holidays. Appearing on the scene is Joe-Jo, a two-headed dragon that has woken up after a 100-year nap. It seems two-headed dragons eat every 100 years and then only elves. Hilarity ensues as Santa’s elves become the menu.

Performers include Nathan McIntyre, Michelle Pitel, Heidi Nelson, Alexa Shaheen, Kaiya Shivers, William Britton, Anastasia Kurzhals, Olivia Rentz and Keenan-Kok-Carlson.

The performance is suitable for children ages 3 through 12.
