Naughty and Nice: A Christmas Repertory
Presented by Salem Theatre Company at Salem Athenaeum
December 4 - December 13, 2009
The Salem Theatre Company will produce two holiday productions in a new repertory offering - Naughty & Nice. For the nice, the STC offers their fifth annual production of Dylan Thomas’ classic, charming holiday tale A Child’s Christmas in Wales. Fun for the whole family, this heart-warming production has become a new holiday tradition in Salem. Thomas’ poetry weaves a touching reminiscence of Christmas’ past and all the joys of being a child during the holiday season. A Child’s Christmas in Wales will be on stage December 4th at 7:30pm, December 6th at 3:00pm, and December 12th at 7:30pm. If you are looking for naughty, catch the STC’s production of Jeff Goode’s risqué comedy The Eight: Reindeer Monologues, directed by Catherine M. Bertrand. Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa’s reindeer accuses him of sexual harassment. As the media descends, the other members of the sleigh team share their own tales of corruption and worse at Santa’s Workshop. The Eight features strong language and adult situations. It will be produced December 5th and 11th at 7:30pm and December 13th at 3:00pm. All performances will take place at the Salem Athenaeum, 337 Essex Street in Salem. Tickets are available separately for each production at www.salemtheatre.com or (978) 790-8546. $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Due to strong language and subject matter, children under 18 are not permitted at The Eight.
