Christmas Presence (Dec 13-21, 1996)

A memorable theatre event unfolds before your eyes in the unslickest Christmas show ever to take place outside of a living room. These magical evenings of readings, music, sketches, monologues, short stories and reminiscences have become an essential part of the Christmas season for many. No two nights are the same as a variety of musicians appear on different evenings, joining Ron Reed to "bring forth treasures old and new" in celebration of the birth of Christ.

TALLEY'S FOLLY (Oct 11 - Nov 2, 1996)

by Lanford Wilson

When Matt Friedman returned to his big city accounting office after falling in love with a small-town girl, he had no idea that she would suddenly refuse to answer his letters and calls. A year later, he returns to the scene of their summer romance, determined to win her back. Set in 1945 against a background of home-front anti-semitism, this Pulitzer Prize winner has a rare ability to touch our hearts and make us laugh.

Matt Friedman - Tim Dixon
Sally Talley - Pam Raven (Muir)

Director - Ron Reed
