Holiday stories from the international best-selling author of “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” have been crafted into an engaging evening of storytelling and song. This charming show takes a funny, heartwarming and often poignant look at the struggle to find the spirit of the holidays amid the avalanche of commercialism, stress and chaos that crashes down every December.
Presented by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing
Director’s notes: “I wanted to present these stories about how folks view this holiday from many perspectives, from a 3-year-old at daycare to someone looking back at three generations of bell ringing. This play also hits Applause’s sweet spot, ensemble acting and telling a meaningful story. Because this play is first and foremost about storytelling. And isn’t that what we have after all these years of celebrating the holidays with friends and family, stories?” – Gary Davis
