In the Wings

Finding Christmas — Pat Harris writes and directs a new Christmas show for Lamp-Lite this year!

Getting ready for the holidays is beginning to wear down everyone in town — and is definitely hurting the spirits of Santa's elves, who are trying to get things ready in time. Then, when a homeless family strays into the workshop, Christmas might be delayed even more.

Opening night will be Friday, December 8, 2017.

Past Performances on the Lamp-Lite Stage

Arsenic and Old Lace

This farcical dark comedy by Joseph Kesselring centers around the Brewster family and two charming and innocent spinster aunts (played by Jackie Vose and Melissa Devine) who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously "acceptable" roomers; the antics of their brother, Teddy (Jon Gauntt), who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt and thinks the dead bodies are men who died from malaria while working on the Panama Canal; and the activities of the other brother,  Jonathan (Les Balty), a murderer who received plastic surgery (Bill Small plays Dr. Einstein, the crazy doctor) to hide his identity.

Justin Hughes plays Mortimer Brewster, the role made famous by Cary Grant in the motion picture directed by Frank Capra, and Tiffany Gauntt plays Elaine Harper. Also included among the all star cast are Steve Josephsen, David McClary Norton,Lee Broadwater, Gerry Peacock, Frank McCuller, Nikolaas Van Kley and Trae Norman. The play opened on Broadway in 1941 and ran for 1,444 performances.
