Rogue Theater Presents Holiday Readings for the Whole Family

Rogue Theater, together with Door County’s Learning in Retirement’s Winter Reading Theater class, will present two classic stories for the holiday season. Readers Lee Ann Casper, Carol Jensen-Olson, Sharon Thill and Mary Beth Williams will join with director David Clowers to present staged readings of “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” by Dylan Thomas and “Dulce Domum” from Kenneth Graham’s The Wind in the Willows. Both are holiday heartwarming stories that are sure to appeal to both young and old alike.

“A Child’s Christmas in Wales” takes listeners back to a childhood Christmas in Wales at the turn of the century, when December was “white as Lapland” and “Mistletoe hung from the gas brackets in all the front parlors and there was sherry and walnuts and bottled beer and crackers by the dessertspoons.”

In the “Dulce Domum” chapter from Kenneth Graham’s The Wind in The Willows, good friends Rat and Mole rediscover Mole’s burrow, which he had abandoned in the spring. Mole finds that it is good to know that he always has his cozy home to come back to, especially at Christmastime.

Performances will be held on Dec. 16 at 7 pm and Dec. 17 at 2 pm, at Rogue Theater, 340 Jaycee Ct., Sturgeon Bay. The suggested donation is $5.

As families gather for this holiday production, Rogue Theater is donating food items for local families in need. Audience members are encouraged to bring dry or canned food items to help double the donation. All food collected will be donated to Lakeshore CAP of Door County.
