City Parks Foundation is proud to announce the launch of The Three Bears Holiday Bash, a marionette production beginning November 13, 2012 at the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre in Central Park.

The Three Bears Holiday Bash, is a variety show that celebrates the holiday season in song, dance, and puppetry. This production quickly becomes a comedy of errors when Baby Bear invites Santa to star in Mama and Papa Bear's annual holiday show. The audience also gets to join in on the fun with a “12 days of Christmas” sing-a-long during the performance!

Drawing from the stories of Hanukkah, the Night Before Christmas, and Kwanzaa, The Three Bears Holiday Bash is a great way to get into the holiday spirit!
