Children’s Christmas and New Year Celebration

December 15, 2013 @ 10:00 pm – December 16, 2013 @ 1:00 am

This year the Russian Cultural Center will host its annual Russian Christmas and New Year Celebration for children on December 15, 2013 at 4  pm. There will be an exciting day filled with family friendly fun for kids and parents. Jean Keucher will bring her ensemble of delicately hand-crafted puppets and marionettes performing “Aladdin and Princess Jasmine.” Aladdin and Princess Jasmine outsmart Jafar to keep the magic lamp safe from evil hands. The Genie appears to grant wishes and transport palaces. This story from “The Tales of the Arabian Nights” will dazzle all ages as string puppets perform on an elaborate marionette stage. After the story, master puppeteer Jean Kuecher reveals the special effects and back stage secrets. After the show, Father Frost and his granddaughter Snegurochka (Snow Maiden) will entertain the little spectators with games and songs. Father Frost in Slavic culture plays a role similar to Santa Claus; however he delivers gifts in person on New Year’s Eve. Children will then recite poetry and rhymes in traditional Russian fashion, and then each child will receive a special gift from Father Frost.
