If you’re looking for that one more thing that might help you get into the holiday spirit this year, make sure that The Suffield Players’ Holiday Benefit Challenge is on your to-do list.
A Christmas Pudding by David Birney is set for Nov. 30 and Dec.1 at 8 p.m., and again on Dec. 2 at 2 pm.
"With its many festive songs and well-loved seasonal stories, this show is sure to warm the hearts of our holiday audience," Suffield Player Mary Fernandez said.
First produced nearly 20 years ago, A Christmas Pudding is a celebration in song, story, and poetry and features the work of Mark Twain, G. B. Shaw, Shakespeare, Longfellow Emily Dickinson, St. Luke and many others.
The three nights also feature “The Annual Holiday Teacup Raffle,” in which audience members bid on baskets full of donated goods and gift certificates with all donations going toward the maintenance and upkeep of the Players’ historic theatre home, Mapleton Hall.
The program features the singing, acting and other musical talents of Kelly Seip, Allen Nott, Karla Majuntke, Chelsea Skawski, Christine Hurst, and Stephanie Chernoff. Also involved are Dan Viets, Timothy Glynn, Mark and Shannon Proulx, and Robin Miller. Shaun O’Keefe, Bruce Showalter, Bill Mullen, Stephanie Maloney and Dana Ring will also take part in the performance, along with Tanya Ochs, Wesley Olds, Janine Flood, Lynn Faherty, Kelsey Kreminec, Mary Fernandez-Sierra and Anna Marie Johansen.
Reservations are not required. General seating tickets will be available at the door, with a $10 donation suggested.
