Featuring a lovable mix of actors, puppet characters from The Jim Henson Company, and a toe-tapping score, it's a classic holiday musical for all ages!This world premiere musical is based on the book Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas by Russell and Lillian Hoban, and the ground-breaking all-puppet HBO special of the same name produced by Jim Henson.
