Feeling festive?  Join us to create your very own mummer ornament. In fact, make two – one to take home, and one to place on a special Mummer Tree at The Rooms. The Mummer ornament tree will be on display over the holidays.

Mummers Festival is pleased to present “The Wholly Untrue Origin of the Ugly Stick.” Written and directed by Audrey Gerow, this short, family friendly play offers a playful twist on the beloved ugly stick.  

Puppet Show times at 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 pm in the theatre. Each show is approximately 12 – 15 minutes long.

Suitable for all ages. Included in the cost of admission.

This event is presented in partnership with the 2023 Mummers Festival.
