No advance tickets remain for purchase. There will be 50 tickets available for purchase at the door beginning at 3pm. Late seating not guaranteed.
Jean Sherrard directs an afternoon of delightfully unconventional Christmas stories, poems, and musical cheer, including Grace Paley's "The Loudest Voice," in which a Jewish girl's vocal stamina makes her the ideal narrator of the school Christmas play; Ron Carlson's hilarious and moving "The H Street Sledding Record," about a father who tosses horse manure on the roof every Christmas Eve to keep the spirit of Santa alive; and Muriel Spark's delirious "The Seraph and the Zambesi," in which an argumentative angel visits a misbegotten colonial Christmas pageant. The program features actors Frank Corrado, Julie Briskman, and Sherrard, with special guests Paul Dorpat and steel guitar master John Owen. Presented by Town Hall with A Contemporary Theatre.
