Holiday Magic 2012Lakewood Theatre Company will present an all new version of their annual Holiday Magic Breakfast Theatre production with the December 2017 presentation of The Peppermint Bear Show: Peppermint Bear and the Giant Elf. Show Sponsor: Banner Bank

The story: Santa’s workshop is in a tizzy when his chair and then magic jingle bells go missing. The giant slips in with plans to become the new, and much, much bigger Santa Claus, and uses the magic jingle bells to take control of the elves to get what he wants. Sally, a young girl whose father assists at the north pole, and Peppermint Bear learn to use “teamwork,” hoping to make everything right before Christmas is ruined.

The show is appropriate for ages 3-103. The book and lyrics are by Michael Snider with music by Kurt Misar. Snider will also direct and choreograph the production. The Peppermint Bear Show first premiered at Portland’s Lipman’s Department Store, which then became Fredrick and Nelson. It became a popular Holiday tradition for over 30 years. Since that time the show has been produced in New York and countless cities on the east coast, mid-west and Hawaii. 

The Holiday Magic Breakfast Theatre production has been an annual Lakewood Theatre tradition for 26 years. Audience members enjoy a special holiday continental breakfast half an hour before the show and performers interact with young audience members to help them celebrate the holidays. The performance is suitable for ages 3-12. There might even be a visit by a man in a red suit!
