This season, Pontine Theatre’s annual holiday celebration features an adaptation of Frank Stockton’s delightful Christmas story, Captain Eli’s Best Ear. Cap’n Eli Bunker, a retired sea captain, is inspired, after many lonely years as a widower, to try his hand at celebrating Christmas once again. After much cogitation, he conspires with his friend and neighbor, Cap’n Cephas Dyer, to mount a fitting holiday event. An orphaned girl, Minerva, and Mrs. Trimmer, whose husband “sailed away in a schooner and never returned,” fill out the cast of this delightful tale. The characters are played by a beautifully crafted cast of bunraku-style puppets
