Tryon Palace is delighted to present New Bern Puppets and their show “An Elf Comes to Tryon Palace.” It is a story about a mysterious stranger who visits New Bern to discover how Colonial North Carolinians celebrate Christmas. The newcomer meets young Margaret Tryon, the Royal Governor’s daughter. Dismayed to hear how meager the holiday celebrations are, the newcomer appeals to Father Christmas to spread a bit of winter magic for Tryons and the residents of New Bern. Adults and children alike will be charmed by this holiday tale. Following each show a puppeteer will emerge to demonstrate a marionette, answer questions, and allow members of the audience to peek at the scenery.
