How a Town Fought Hate
Catskill Puppet Theatre and Young Audiences of New Jersey team up to tell the true story of an American town overcoming hate groups. Based on the award-winning children’s book “The Christmas Menorahs”, and underscored by original music, beautiful large puppets depict the struggle of Billings, Montana during the 1993 holiday season, when the community defeated the local bullies threatening their minority neighbors.
