Pippi Longstocking Sails into Town

For your family’s holiday delight, The Kennedy Center Imagination Celebration (KCIC) in Colorado Springs will present Pippi Longstocking as the second performance of its five-part Family Theater Season. American Family Theater’s Broadway for Kids from Philidelphia, brings this all-time favorite, Pippi Longstocking to the stage on Tuesday, December 14, 2004 at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade) at 7:00 pm. Join us one hour before the performance for a fun-filled hour of hands-on art activities. Reserved seating is only $10.00 per person. Call the Pikes Peak Center Box Office at 520-SHOW to make your reservations today!

Imagination Celebration would like to invite families to fill Pippi’s stocking during the holiday season. We are asking families to bring an unwrapped book, stuffed animals, dolls, trucks, art supplies or games to our office at 1515 N. Academy Blvd, Suite 200 or bring the item to the Pippi Longstocking performance. All proceeds will be donated to Kids Crossing, a Colorado non-profit Child Placement Agency, that recruits, licenses and supervises foster and foster-adopt homes. Kids Crossing has been in existence since June 1992.

Way out at the end of a tiny little town is an old overgrown garden and in the garden is an old house that is next door to Tommy, his sister Annika and their mother, Mrs. Settergren. The tenant of this house is Pippolita Delicatessa Windowshade Macrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking-that’s her full name, but everyone calls her Pippi. Join us for the tale of Pippi, a crazy red-headed girl with pigtails, whose father is a pirate away at sea. While her father is gone she stays with a horse that lives on her porch, and a pet monkey named Mr. Nilsson. Whether Pippi’s doing arithmetic (or pluttifikation as Pippi calls it), out-smarting thieves, or impressing the grown-ups with her good manners, her flair for the outrageous always seems to lead to another adventure. This beloved story of the spunky young girl and her hilarious escapades is one you won’t want to miss. Pippi Longstocking is based on Astrid Lindgren’s book that she wrote for her daughter in 1950.

American Family Theater and the “Broadway of Kids” series is a 33-year-old national touring company, which produces family classics such as Alice in Wonderland, which Imagination Celebration brought to Colorado Springs in 20002. All of their shows have original scripts and music.
