A Classic Henson Holiday featuring A Muppet Family Christmas


Location: Redstone Theater

Introduced by Craig Shemin, President of The Jim Henson Legacy

Among the many holiday programs created by Jim Henson, A Muppet Family Christmas (1987) holds a very special place in the hearts of Muppet fans, as it unites the Muppet characters, the Fraggles (including Doc & Sprocket) and the Sesame Street characters in one big family reunion. In addition to a complete, uncut version of the program, Craig Shemin will present rare behind-the-scenes home movies from the production, and a compilation of some memorable moments from other Henson holiday productions.
