In the Wings

In December, we will once again present Finding Christmas, written and directed by 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!

OPEN AUDITIONS for adults, children, elves and workshop personnel for this holiday production will be held on Saturday, November 2, at 10am.

Opening night is Friday, December 13, 2019.

What We Need

What We Need, a new play by Ken Untiedt, focuses on Alex Jones, an ordinary guy who is divorced, struggling to maintain a relationship with his kids, foundering at work and failing in romance.

Alex forms an unlikely friendship with Walter, a WWII veteran he meets at the grocery store. As he learns more about Walter and the challenges he overcame, Alex gains an appreciation for the opportunities before him. He  decides to be bold…and starts taking chances.

He introduces his kids to Walter and his wife, and to the nurse who cares for them. Together, they all embrace a new, unexpected chapter in their lives.

The cast includes Bill Small, Carla Redfield, Tina Oswald, Kearsten Clark Humber, Sally Ellsworth, Olivia Dean, Jody Ryan, Joshua Hall, Hollis Thompson and Ken Untiedt.
