Anyone who says winter is dull hasn't lived in St. Louis. Here is a sampling.

Arts performers and educators spread the celebration to St. Louis County Library branches as part of the year's Art@Your Library. Times, dates, locations: http://www.slcl.org/art@yourlibrary/january-february. Registration required for some events.
Monkey Tales Theatre presents a new twist on the classic fairy tale, "The Frog Prince," for ages 3 and up and Paul Mesner Puppets present the “Comical Adventures of Old Mother Hubbarb” for preschoolers and older. The play includes audience participation, silly antics and important environmental lessons as the maiden tries to rescue the prince from the evil troll princess.
