Opening December 9: "The Very Different Christmas Dinner"

GroundWorks Theatre is proud to present our latest holiday original production, Robert A. O'Connell's "The Very Different Christmas Dinner." The production will be directed by the playwright, and the cast features Jonathan Stephens, Myra Stephens, Charles Howard, Trish Crist, Brian T. Hill, Kellye Mitchell, Eric Ventress, and Heather Webber.

While preparing to host their annual Christmas dinner party, Rob and Laura Dish pray that their guests could be more interesting than the usual suspects, and are indeed surprised when their regular invitees are replaced by Abe Lincoln, Amelia Earhart, Oscar Wilde, Marilyn Monroe, Janis Joplin, and Jesus.

Performances Thursday through Saturday nights at 7:30pm, with Sunday matinees at 2:30pm. $15 adults, $12 students & seniors; cash and check accepted at the door.
