Details:
“Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." But wait! A mouse is stirring - because Santa missed his house last year. Before you can say "Merry Christmas!", we're off on the wild adventures of a mouse, an elf, and a spunky little girl who just won't take no for an answer. Don't miss this joyful tribute to the holiday season! “A momentum and ebullience worthy of the Pixar era animate this world-premiere play, whose story line involves a heist, a duel with rapiers, some hip-hop, a squirt gun, a perilous airplane flight and an elf’s stint as a secret agent.  Such a playful spirit romps through 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, you might think the show itself was a product of Santa’s workshop.” - The Washington Post
Characters Needed: Sir Guy of Gisbourne/Uncle Brierly (ages 40s-60s) - Played by the same actor, Sir Guy is a master swordsman, a sardonic wit & the trickiest, sneakiest, most self-satisfied dandy who ever had a black heart & a pencil moustache. Uncle Brierly is a bit portly, has a plummy, resonant voice & hearty manner, when he beams at children he could be the kindly uncle of any of them.

Amos/Amos of Kansas (ages teens-20s) - Played by the same actor, they are twin mice.  Amos is a city mouse, lively, witty, friendly.  Amos of Kansas is a country mouse, twangy, relaxed & philosophical about life. This role can also be played by a female.

Emily (about 10) - a sweet little girl with attitude.

Calliope/Britannia Sneed (teens-20s) - Played by the same actor, Calliope is a 518 years old Christmas elf but looks 14. Britannia is Wendell's wife, dotty & good natured.

Mulch/Santa Clause/Wendell Sneed (40s-60s) - Mulch is Sir Guy's sidekick, a medieval peasant-in-training. Santa - this one has a temper. Wendell Sneed is a friend of Uncle Brierly, big, bluff, noisy & goodnatured.

Production

"Angry, passionate, raw, funny and sad…Here's a play that cuts right to the bone of its characters." —Variety.

  • Summary: Set in a fish packing plant in the 1980’s in Massachusetts, the play centers on the daily routine of the workers, mostly women. But despite the ribald humor, juicy gossip, and boisterous horseplay that enlivens their working day, all are aware that there are signs of impending trouble. Layoffs abound and closure is imminent. Despite the bravado of the philandering plant manager, who attempts to persuade an officious lady health inspector to "look the other way," their worst fears are realized with the notice that North Shore Fish will soon be replaced by a fitness center. The workers, like so many others across the nation whose jobs have been lost to industrial obsolescence and foreign competition, are shaken but not surprised, and while they accept their fate stoically there is also a sense of helplessness and defeat which brings great poignancy to the final moments of the play. These are good-spirited people, whose hard work and dedication have come to nothing—and they are powerless to do anything about it.

As Julia explores the apartment, her musing and pain are interrupted by the sudden appearance of Katie, a beautiful young woman who seems to know Jack a little too well. At first glance, the two women appear to have nothing in common save Julia's husband. As they face off in the apartment, secrets unfold revealing the burdens each has been carrying, and they learn they have more in common than either could have thought possible. Pied-Ã -Terre, or a second home, has a central theme about grieving, loss and survivor's guilt, where the passions of the soul come into conflict with the obligations of the mind and the needs of the heart.

Student Testimonials:

"Improv 101 was a class that stretched my mind, my imagination and my soul. I learned how to listen to others and laugh at myself. I learned how to become a kid all over again."

"I used the idea of 'something could go terribly wrong, I can't wait' at work and found it very liberating. I wasn't fearful anymore of the unexpected happening."

"Jason was an energetic guide who pulled out the inner actor in me. I was able to let go and have fun without inhibitions. Enjoyable, fearless, and pushy--I have enlarged my boundaries."

"I can't wait to do it again. I feel more fun and playful. It's a great way to get out of the seriousness of every day life. Then bring that fun back into my life. I could not have found a better way to be more like a kid again."

"Just wanted to say thank you! I did a 1.5 hr presentation the other day for 70 people and it went wonderfully. Before taking improv with ya'll I would have been a wreck (even with a much smaller presentation) THANK YOU!!"

"Remember when you were a kid, when acting silly & having fun went hand in hand. If you want to find some fun in your life again, take this class ... and hey, it's cheaper than therapy ..."

"I had so much fun! I opened up and explored the different side of me. I learned that I can do anything if I put my mind to it. Awesome & fun!"
