Jim Henson Company Presentation
Thanks to a partnership with the Jim Henson Company we are able to present a program we are calling Something Old and Something New. We will be screening an episode of Jim Henson’s brilliant 1983 series Fraggle Rock and pairing it with an episode of the new series Doozers, based on the characters created for the original series. Complete with an introduction from the Jim Henson Company, this is an event not to be missed.
