Holiday Potluck Supper

Entertainment: Chanticleer the Rooster, a family friendly Canterbury Tale

Gift Exchange and More!

ENTERTAINMENT: Chanticleer the Rooster

Magical Moonshine’s newest addition to the Canterbury Collection is Chaucer’s Canterbury tale about a rooster who is caught by the flattering fox…but foxes can be fooled as well. Assisting the beloved Chanticleer is a wise ant, as well as the pig, sheep, goat, dog, hen and farmer. Medieval costumes and live, ancient music (including a version of “Old MacDonald Had A Farm” from 1710!) make for a delightful and interactive family program. This production is inspired by the Kelmscott Chaucer from the McCune Art and Rare Book Collection, who are sponsors of the project.

POTLUCK SUPPER

Please bring your favorite dish to share with others. Appetizers for the Social and Main courses are always appreciated. Microwave available. Dinnerware will be provided.

ADOPT A TABLE & TRIM THE ROOM

The tables at Bay Area Stage may be little cabaret style tables…we are not sure yet. More info on this will follow. Individuals and companies are invited to adopt and decorate a table. Any and all holidays are recognized!!! Questions about decorations? Contact Valerie Nelson at mail@magicalmoonshine.org. Also, holiday decorations for the room will be greatly appreciated. Doors open at 3:30, so bring in some decorations (no nails please) to trim the room. At the end you just take your decorations down and take them home.

GIFT EXCHANGE

If you wish to participate in the exchange, bring a puppet related, wrapped gift to add to the pile (in the past, $10.00 approximate value has been suggested.) All who bring a gift will get to receive one.

PUPPET DISPLAY

Do you have a puppet that you’ve made, that you’d like to display? A table will be provided for an informal puppet exhibit, so bring your puppet (on a stand, if needed) and share your puppet(s) with others.

Gabriel Anthony, who WOWed us with his black-light workshop, has offered to share his story creation knowledge, from his experience with Pixar and Disney. 

Gabriel says: Let’s explore the secrets behind the success of the world’s leading animation studios! We’ll discuss story development, character development, and creativity and see what I’ve gleaned from my vast collection of “the Making of” books for films like “Toy Story,” “Frozen” and “Wall-E.”
Gabriel has been enthusiastically involved in puppetry for over 15 years, not including his younger years when he staged puppet shows from his bunk bed. He is the director of “Create, Minister, Teach!” – a creative ministry team in Daly City. They enjoy blending powerful stories with diverse art forms to present musical programs throughout the Bay Area. He has taught at regional, national and international conferences. He has also traveled to Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua and Ecuador for mission trips to equip locals with puppetry and creative techniques for working with their communities.
