Finding Christmas

In December, we will once again present Finding Christmas, written and directed by Lamp-Lite's very own Pat Harris. The Musical Director for the show will be Charisse Gregory.

Santa’s workshops are slowing down, people have lost their Christmas spirit, and Santa and the elves have the blues. The pressures of the holiday season have become so tedious that fewer people are enjoying themselves and each other. Someone NEEDS to find a solution before Santa’s workshops shut down forever!

This will be the Lamp-Lite Players second production of this delightful holiday play by Pat Harris. Finding Christmas made its debut on the Lamp-Lite stage in 2017.

Watch for notices on and on our Facebook page.
