“What I saw threw me for a loop, knocked me back, and took me down a peg, all at once. This was crazily inventive, beautifully adapted, serious, moody theatre. Not only did my 5 year old sit rapt for the entire 45 minutes, so did I —it was pure magic.”

“Like walking into a 3D Storybook!” & “Magical! It’s like a little vacation!”

A Very Ruff Christmas is a 30-minute theatrical experience that takes place in a 10’x10′ tent, beginning and ending with a beach-themed play sessions.  The artistic adventure is told through puppetry, music, diorama, shadow-play, language exploration and a surprising amount of sand. A Very Ruff Christmas was created to specifically engage 0-5 year olds and their grown-ups during this holiday season. Great for morning parent groups to come out for some theatre festivity!  For more info: www.spinningdot.org/ruff
