Golden Memories of Christmas Past

Directed by J.J. Lewis-Nichols , we open on Friday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. and continue Dec. 8, 14, 15, with a final matinee on Sunday December 16 at 2:30pm


This glorious treat for the whole family includes four mini versions of Lewis-Nichols’ work with Melinda Perlman and Bob Marshall; “The Littlest Angel,” “Little Women-A Merry Christmas,” “Millennium in Rosewood Park,” “Christmas Carol,” plus an original piece by Tim Mason. Our cast of 40 features favorite performers and talented ‘newbies.’ “The Littlest Angel” based on the narrative by Charles Tarzwell stars Gabby Gliatto, Katie Bicego, Rhonda Lindquist, Cooper Bruhns, and Akemi Dean. “Little Women-A Merry Christmas” based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott stars Laura Flett with Sarah Knox, Allayana Darrow, Madie Meyer, and Sophia Gliatto. “Christmas Carol” brings Ned Nichols to SPAC as Ebeneezer Scrooge with Bart Ackerman, Robin and Tom O’Brien, John Timm, John and Destiny McNally, Nicole Ottinger, and Dee Jones, and is based on the novel by Charles Dickens. One crazy Calypso Rap summarizes “Millennium in Rosewood Park” which spoke to the ‘Y2K?

The final piece, written by Tim Mason is called “A Speech to the Mice” featuring Kymberly Morgan as an eccentric ballet teacher giving notes to her ‘Mouse Armada’ before their final performance of “The Nutcracker” ballet.

Every part of this show has been especially contoured for this Christmas and is sure to bring laughter and a few tears. Lights and sound are coordinated by Angelina Toney; set artist is Mary Carpelan; “The Orphan Ballet” is choreographed by Angela Martinez
with Akemi Dean, and costumes are headed by Cindy Brown, Barbara Soule’, and Heidi Martin. Our poster and press pictures are by Celeste Foster.
