The Stokes County Arts Council and NoneSuch Playmakers Presents:
“Uh-Oh, Here Comes Christmas!”
Join us at The Arts Place of Stokes for 15 holiday stories from the international best-selling author of All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, Robert Fulghum.
Adapted by Ernest Zulia and David Caldwell, this will be 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 each December.
The many delightful stories include a small immigrant child who comes trick-or-treating in a cheap Santa mask a few days before Christmas, inadvertently delivering the true meaning of the season to a grown-up with a serious case of “Scroogitis,”hilarious musings about a love/hate relationship with the vibrant poinsettia, and a beautiful, deeply moving tribute to the winter solstice, celebrating nature’s precious annual gift of rebirth.
“These stories are universal,” said Brack Llewellyn, NoneSuch co-founder and the show’s director. “I think just about everyone has struggled with a Christmas pageant, or felt a little down during the holidays, or dealt with a poinsettia that won’t go away. These are personal, human experiences that many of us share. No matter how you feel about Christmas, there’s something for you in our play. As the stories unfold, I believe that our audience members will smile–or mabye sniffle–and whisper to themselves, ‘Yes. Been there.’”
The ensemble cast includes Llewellyn, his wife Angela, Grant Perry, Jessica Llewellyn, Mereith Dowdy, Olivia Jessup, Kristin Sands, Jane Tucker and Brian Patterson.
