Aesop's Fable-ous Christmas Tree

Next date: Dec 9, 2022 - click here for time schedule - English

Main Street Players is proud to present the first show of their 2023 season, Aesop's Fable-ous Christmas Tree by Michael Gravois, directed by Brandon Urrutia.

When Aesop's fables are given a holiday spin, you'll get a mash-up of The Twelve Days of Christmas and The Tortoise and the Hare, where the six birds of Christmas compete in a comical race with the turtle dove winning, of course; a tiny snow mouse teaches the abominable snowman that little friends may prove great friends; Ebenezer Scrooge realizes that wealth unused might as well not exist; Santa's elves dream of a life outside the workshop as they sing a "patter poem" about their ideal careers; and even though the eight reindeer panic when Rudolph gets a cold in the nose, they learn that necessity is the mother of invention. A dozen vignettes illuminate important life lessons by reinventing the classic fables, blending humor, rhythmic elements, rapping, puppetry, poetry, song, and storytelling to create a fast-paced, fun-filled show that's filled with Christmas spirit.

Tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for students, seniors, (65+) and military personnel. Theatre League/Industry $20 with i.d. at the door only. Tickets may be purchased in advance at website, or at the door 60 minutes prior to showtime.

A Doll's House, Part 2

By Lucas Hnath

Preview performance: Friday, February 24

As a door slams in 1879 Norway, a young wife and mother leaves behind her family, freeing herself from the shackles of traditional societal constraints. Now, 15 years later, that same door opens to reveal Nora, a changed woman with an incredibly awkward favor to ask the people who she abandoned. Lucas Hnath’s bitingly funny sequel to Ibsen’s revolutionary masterpiece unfolds in a series of bristling stand-offs that reveal in Nora’s world, much like our own, behind every opinion there is a person, and a slamming door isn’t just an end, but also the chance for a new beginning. Starring Rachel Burttram, Brendan Powers and Elizabeth Dimon.
