"The critics are raving" about our Fall Production of Mary Poppins!
"The production was as professional as any that I have seen. I hate to brag, but I am a Mary Poppins aficionado. This show was AMAZING!!! Mary Poppins actually flies - something I have never seen in children's theater. As I sat in the darkened theater watching a VERY talented Bert and Mary Poppins perform, I thought of the imagination, creativity and talent that is required of a director of any production, but particularly children's theater. I can't tell you how impressed I was!"
A Christmas Carol
A Toby Nicholson Production
Celebrate the holidays with the magic of Toby Nicholson's original production of A Christmas Carol Saturday, December 5th and Sunday, December 6th at the Winnetka Community House. Charles Dickens' timeless tale of hope and redemption comes to life with the arrival of ghosts, delightful musical numbers, plenty of "Bah Humbugs" and Scrooge's joyful discovery of love. Filled with energy and the spirit of the season, A Christmas Carol is heartwarming entertainment for the entire family! Ebenezer Scrooge, a mean-spirited old man, receives visitations from the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet to Come. Through a sequence of mysterious scenes, he finally learns his lesson. Overwhelmed with joy by the chance to redeem himself, Scrooge transforms into a gentler, kinder man, who embraces the spirit of Christmas.
Veteran Toby Nicholson's triumphant show comes to life with special effects and spectacular sets, also designed by Toby. The performance features a cast of professional actors joined by local amateurs from the North Shore.
