ABOUT THE PLAY

Goblins haunt the synagogue at the top of the hill. Hershel of Ostropol takes it upon himself to face the goblins and save Hanukkah. An original adaptation of the Caldecott honored book by Eric Kimmel, Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins is a celebration of a child's imagination with an original klezmer score, feats of puppetry, and maybe some actors on stilts. An Amphibian holiday first.
