Christmas Thieves by Greg Oliver Bodine
December 6 & 7 @ 7:30 p.m., December 8 @ 2:00 & 7:30 p.m.
Directed by Margi Griffiths

It’s Christmas Eve in America’s heartland, and radio host Greta Gundlarson is preparing for the telethon performance that will save the radio station. The plan is going well with locals performing A Visit from Saint Nicolas and  A Childs Christmas in Wales.  Unfortunately the prize troupe of British actors she’s hired for the grand finale have all fallen ill due to something they ate at a local diner.  Will Greta be able to replace them in time to save the station? Join us for this situational comedy set in a radio studio in a small town in Minnesota that is part radio play and part play. Tickets: $10 Adult, $8 MAC Member, $5 Student (under 12).  Purchase online, by calling 304-258-2300, or at the door.

MACreate – Introduction to Sumi-e Painting
