"Christmas in The Kitchen" is a memorable live holiday music experience that raises toy, money and food donations for local charities. This year our recipient is Annie Malone Children and Family Services.
Mitzi MacDonald and Keltic Reign perform in a uniquely set Christmas Kitchen, including Irish and Scottish dancing and singing, and a glow-in-the-dark drum solo with audience participation that will thrill young and old alike! See Santa arrive playing the bagpipes, and as always... you are invited on-stage, throughout the performance, to partake of tea and homemade cookies at Mitzi's kitchen table. Mitzi's husband and children are a part of the band, so this is a real family experience.
Bring an unwrapped toy, and get a child's admission free. (we give you your $5 back, if ticket was already purchased)
Tea is donated by Kateri of Traveling Tea , in Maplewood.
Come early! Doors open at 6pm with a Silent Auction that is lots of fun! Gift certificates, beautiful baskets from local stores, a gorgeous framed watercolor painting by local artist Richard Skow, even Mitzi's shortbread cookies are in the auction! The bar is open, and the wonderfully talented Ken Martin will be serenading you! The auction continues on through intermission.
