With the health and safety of our audiences, artists and staff as our top priority, New 42 regrets to announce that all remaining performances of Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas are now canceled.
Treasure a new holiday tradition with Jim Henson’s Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas! Based on Jim Henson’s beloved television special, this tuneful tale takes us to Frogtown Hollow where Ma and Emmet Otter risk what little they have to make each other’s holiday dreams come true. Featuring a lovable cast of performers with puppets from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, and a toe-tapping score by legendary songwriter Paul Williams, this very merry musical will warm the hearts of a new generation for winters to come!
To provide the safest possible experience, we cannot accommodate kids under 4 at the theater at this time.
