Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins is a fun play for the whole family! Our puppet designer, Chris Griffith, won an Ivey Award for his outstanding puppet design in our 2009 production. And now he's back with brand-new puppets! Read more about Chris and the art of puppetry here.
Hershel of Ostropol has been walking long and hard with growing anticipation for the Hanukkah holiday. Tired and hungry, he imagines the smell of latkes and the bright lights of the menorah. But when Hershel arrives in Helmsbergville, the village is silent. Goblins have been preventing Hanukkah in Helmsbergville for years. Can this visitor help bring Hanukkah back?
