About the Show
MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHTER
Featuring holidays stories by authors W.O. Mitchell, Thomas King, along with two timeless tales; The Night Before Christmas and The Mitten.
Jump back into our cozy little snow globe that is The Artesian and join us as we tune up the radio wires for a new version of our sold-out holiday tradition from 2021 and 2022. This year we bring to life four different stories, Frankincents an’ Meer by W.O. Mitchell, Coyote’s New Suit by Thomas King, a new translation of the Ukrainian folk tale The Mitten and The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore. Join us to celebrate holiday merrymaking and seasonal tradition all against the backdrop of an old-fashioned radio play.
This recent holiday tradition at Globe Theatre is styled as a live action radio play, set in the intimate Artesian Theatre. Cast members narrate, sing, and make live foley sound effects bringing 4 short stories to life. This season’s show features the same format as the 2021 and 2022 version with 4 new stories.
