Season of Light celebrates many of the world's holiday customs and explores how diverse cultures light up the season.  The show recounts the historical religious and cultural rituals practiced during the time of the winter solstice - not only Christian and Jewish, but also Celtic, Nordic, Irish, Mexican, and Hopi.  It also takes a look at some of our more light-hearted seasonal traditions from gift-giving and kissing under the mistletoe, to songs about lords a-leap-ing and ladies dancing, and the custom of decking the halls with greenery and candles. St. Nicholas, Sinterklaas, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, and Santa Claus all drop by as well.

Animalopolis will take you on a voyage into the magical world of animals. A bit fanciful, a bit "Seussian" perhaps, a place of good natured humor, beauty and just plain fun for kids and their parents.

Whether going nose to nose with hippos as they graze upon nature's massive salad bar, or eye to eye with dancing bears, sea lions turning somersaults, an otter that prays, we are reminded that nature provides us with humor and wonder, everywhere.

Animalopolis takes a lighthearted and imaginary look at a variety of animals including cheetahs that race like a Ferrari, bears that run their own fishing school, an operatic lion, scary crabs that hold a town hostage and even attempt to cuddle with children, and much more.
