LOOKING AT CHRISTMAS

by Steven Banks

Directed by Mark Stephens

Dec 7-9 & 12-16, 2018

Fri & Sat @ 8:00 PM / Wed & Thu @ 7:30 PM / Sun @ 2:30 PM

Christmas Eve. New York City. An aspiring writer and a struggling actress meet while looking at the famous holiday windows, and the characters in the displays come to life and look back at them, including a lecherous elf with eyes for Mrs. Claus; Scrooge and Tiny Tim arguing about being portrayed as zombies; a street-wise Little Match Girl; Jim from "The Gift of the Magi" enjoying his wife's new androgynous haircut; and a jealous Joseph The Carpenter. A smart, sweet, slightly twisted holiday romantic comedy.

Jason Biszick – John

Laura Graver – Tiny Tim, Little Match Girl

Meigg Jupin – Mrs Claus, Model, Della, Betty, Cathleen, Mary
