Holiday Family Festival at DCC Set for Dec. 11

December 3, 2010 – The final Family Festival of the semester at Dutchess Community College is a holiday performance called “Silent Nights.” It will be held Dec. 11 at 11 a.m. in the James and Betty Hall Theatre on DCC’s Poughkeepsie campus.

Mime Craig Babcock will discover snowballs, angels, snowmobiles and more while he embarks on a quest to find the perfect gift for mom. Soon, he discovers a magical present, a ball that can change into any gift that comes to mind. Later, he finds himself caught in a maze, dreams of a powerful snowman, and becomes a wide variety of winter animals, including a snow goose, owl, rabbit and the rare red-nosed snow moose.

The show is free, open to the public and appropriate for all ages.
