Alice Jayne found him on Christmas Eve under the tree. He wore a red bow around his neck. It was lovely. Except he ate it.
ó “Christmas Crocodile”RoBoJo Theatre Troupe returns to Rowan Public Library this Saturday for the 11th annual presentation of their Holiday Theater. The show has grown from the initial benefit performance with more actors than audience members to a standing-room-only crowd each year.
This group of talented local actors will perform an hour-long variety show of skits, songs, readers’ theater and audience participation. Favorite children’s books such as “Angel Pig,” “The Christmas Crocodile,” and “Wombat Divine” come to life in a hilarious and often spontaneous fashion.
The skit “Santa Visits the Moes” had everyone laughing in the aisles last year.
Also returning this yera will be “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.”
Corny jokes, funy limericks and adorable puppets add to the show. Adults as well as children are encouraged to attend, as the program is a celebration of all that is good during this holiday season. Fun and laughter is promised.
The one-time-only show begins at 2 p.m. in the Stanback Auditorium at Rowan Public Library’s Headquarters location 2021 W. Fisher St. For more information, call 704-216-8234.
