Winter Tales

Directed by Paul Ford

A cast of both young people and adults will offer a performance of stories, fables and fairytales of winter, the holidays, and a few other inventions to make you laugh and think. A joyous treat for the whole family.

This story-theatre presentation uses a number of different stories and poetry—and historical portraits of celebrations from around the world—in a delightful production that celebrates the winter and its holidays. Great for the entire family and matinee performances on Saturday afternoons at 2 p.m.!


Director Ford says, "I'm delighted to work with this exceptional cast as they create new versions of these old tales. The production will be a joyful, funny and warm addition to every audience member's holiday experience"

December 2-18, 2022. Fri 7:30pm; Sat 2pm & 7:30pm; Sun 2pm.
