Into the Light! Featuring The The Vanaver Caravan Dancers & Musicians and Arm-of-the-Sea Theater Giant Puppets in Ellenville

A holiday spectacular featuring The Vanaver Caravan Dancers & Musicians and Arm-of-the-Sea Theater Giant Puppets at Ellenville High School. Into the Light! will brighten the winter holiday season in Ellenville again for the fourth year when Ellenville Public Library & Museum sponsors this celebratory performance by The Vanaver Caravan and Arm of the Sea Theater, with special guests Barely Lace Singers. For the past four years, this wonderful multicultural pageant has thrilled Ulster County families in Ellenville with live music, puppetry and lyrical dance. Performers include Vanaver Caravan's Youth Company and CaravanKids, along with the CaravanKids in Ellenville. "Performing with the company and Arm of the Sea in Into the Light! is a wonderful opportunity. Our joint vision is about using the program to build community. The show is inspiring for everyone,” said Asha Golliher, former Outreach Librarian at EPL&M, which serves Ellenville as well as Rochester and Wawarsing. Free, family-friendly performance. Snow date Sunday, Dec. 10, 3 p.m.

The story of Into the Light!  tells of how Lucia travels the world's communities to learn the ways that light is kept glowing through the darkest part of the year, and the show touches on a variety of holiday traditions including Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Sankta Lucia (Sweden), Winter Solstice, and Yule. Expect color, pageantry, and a heartfelt celebration for the whole family to enjoy. Join us, as we dance in the hope that we all remember to reach for the light!
