RoBoJo Theatre Troupe returns to Rowan Public Library on Saturday, Dec. 3, for the 12th annual presentation of their Holiday Theater. Joining children’s librarian Robert Jones this year are Mary Ann McCubbin, Tammie Casper, Darryl Casper, Len Clark, Claudia Galup, Maureen Shay, Cindi Graham, Lee Piper, and Brian Romans. 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 in years past. I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas returns as well as Merry Christmas, Big Hungry Bear. Corny jokes, funny 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.
The one-time-only show begins at 2 p.m. in the Stanback Auditorium at RPL’s Headquarters location, 201 W. Fisher Street. For more information call 704-216-8234.
