On Sunday, December 16 from 1 to 4 p.m. the New Mexico Museum of Art will host the marionettes at their annual performance during the museum’s free Annual Holiday Open House.
Kids, sitting very close to the stage, can get up-close and personal with the magical Juan and Rosina, Miguelito, the burro, and of course, Warts, the rascally duende with a heart of gold.
The marionettes will perform two short plays for children of all ages. A children’s “treasure hunt” will find Freckles, Warts’ twin brother, hiding in the museum galleries. Enjoy a photo opportunity with the Baumann Santa Claus marionette who, in a reversal of tradition, sits on your lap to grant holiday wishes. Families enjoy arts and crafts projects, holiday music fills the air, and refreshments are served.
Free admission. For more information the public may call, 505-476-5068.
The New Mexico Museum of Art is located at 107 West Palace Avenue, on the Plaza in downtown Santa Fe.
