About This Show

What are the villagers to do? The holiday-hating hobgoblins are determined to ruin yet another Hanukkah for the town. But these wicked yet bumbling creeps never counted on Hershel of Ostropol showing up! With nothing but his wits, pickles and a dreidel, will Hershel be able to break their power? What happens when he confronts the King of the Goblins himself?

Eric Kimmel’s award-winning book was groundbreaking for its contemporary twist on holiday storytelling. Gas & Electric Arts now brings Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins to the stage in an expansive and exhilarating production for audiences ages eight and up. This theatrical wonder will enchant and engage audiences through live klezmer music and hand-crafted puppetry combined with Gas & Electric Arts’ signature theatrical style for a totally new, multi-sensory, celebratory experience.

Appropriate for ages 7 and up.
