Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas

Saturday, December 11, 2021
Show: 3pm // Doors: 2:30pm
$10 to $20

Furry friends, the time has come once more for our favorite night of the year: the annual Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas pageant!

The music of Jim Henson’s 1977 love note to the creative life, performed live by The Emmet Otter All-Stars, featuring Eiren Caffall, Lawrence Peters, Matt Gandurski, Seth Vanek, Kip Rainey, and Charlie Malave.

Snuggle up for all those Paul Wiliams-penned songs from the 1977 Christmas TV special, with incidental dialogue, and narration adapted from the original book by our rotating cast of performers.

This year they’re taking over The Hideout, Chicago’s best hometown bar and music venue, for a record four shows, two on Saturday, and two on Sunday. Each day there will be a family-friendly afternoon show, and a more grown up (but still kid-appropriate) evening show. All four shows will include additional holiday tunes by The Otters!

Two performances Saturday and Sunday: Doors open at 2:30pm and 6:30pm.

Shows start Saturday and Sunday at 3pm and 7pm.

Adults: $20

Kids under 14 (fully vaccinated): $10
