Performance Notes

× A Whimsical, Fantastical & Lyrical New Holiday Tradition for Dallas Families! Welcome to a winter wonderland with SOLSTICE featuring an all-star cast - Denise Lee, Paul Taylor, Marti Etheridge, Ian Mead Moore, and Sara Prejean. Aunt Brighid (Denise Lee) helps to keep her niece (Sara Prejean) calm through the winter solstice—the longest night of the year—by eliciting the help of magical creatures and other beings to tell stories and sing songs related to the holiday season. Pieces performed and interpreted throughout the evening include a Santa Claus origin story by Frank L. Baum (author of The Wizard of Oz), a story about an Italian witch from Philadelphia who encounters the Three Wise Men, poems from Longfellow, Frost and contemporary poet Susan Cooper, as well as short plays and new music created by local Dallas storytellers and musicians. “It's new and different while still feeling traditional,” says director Jeffrey Schmidt, who collaborated on Federico’s last project at Theatre Three, the critically acclaimed New York-bound musical On the Eve. “One moment the show is magical, then turns funny and just a little bit irreverent.”

Interpreted Performance - Thursday, November 30th at 7:30 p.m.
