Additional show added due to popular demand!

Mummenschanz has been enchanting audiences of all ages for 35 years with its clever, comic and bizarre world filled with strange creatures, amusing situations, astounding colors and imaginative shapes. Its newest show 3 X 11 (a 33-year retrospective of Mummenschanz) is the perfect way to celebrate the holidays if you’re looking for a unique alternative to The Nutcracker or A Christmas Carol. Using ordinary materials such as toilet paper, white sheets, foam and recycled junk that morph into giant balloons, huge slinkies, gargantuan potato heads and accordion-pleated tubes, this beloved Swiss company tells incredible stories that transcend the need for words. These invisible masters of movement (founding members Bernie Schürch, Floriana Frassetto with Raffaella Mattioli and Pietro Montandon) have revolutionized theatre using mime, acting, dance and magic, and according to the Boston Herald, they create their “own comic universe – a place of constant wonder and ingenuity.” It’s perfect for the whole family and will surely delight both adults and children alike!
