Rogue Theater will present two classic stories for the holiday season. A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas, whose evocative prose takes his listeners back to a childhood Christmas in turn of the century Wales, 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.”
And in the “Dulce Domum” chapter from Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in The Willows, when 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, a “place which was all his own, these things which were so glad to see him again and could always be counted upon for the same simple welcome,” especially at Christmastime.
Readers Lee Ann Casper, Carol Jensen-Olson, and Mary Beth Williams will join with director David Clowers to present a staged reading of these two heartwarming stories that are sure to appeal to both young and old alike. They will be performed together at Rogue Theater, 340 Jaycee Court, Sturgeon Bay, on Dec. 15 at 7 pm and Dec. 16 at 2 pm. The suggested donation is $5 at the door. 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 the show. All food collected will be donated to Lakeshore CAP of Door County. For more information, call 920.818.0816.
