Celebrate this beautiful time of year with Lost Nation Theater’s STORIES FOR THE SEASON on Wednesday December 19th.
It’s LNT’s Gift to you! (It’s Free!)

 

On Wednesday December 19th at 7pm, many of your favorite Lost Nation Theater artists will gather to present dramatic readings of stories from around the world. The return of the light and the peaceful magic of this winter season is heralded in tales from a host of different traditions.

 

In Stories of the Season you’ll hear works from O’Henry, Hans Christian Anderson, Isaac Bashevis and even Dr. Seuss, alongside Native American, Pagan, and African legends, poems, and myths, – maybe even a Beatle tune or two!

 

The evening is made possible by these fabulous performers! Some of the community’s very favorite LNT stars!
We’re overjoyed that our alumni cast of It’s A Wonderful Life:

Kim Allen Bent (Red),
Cher Laston (Stone),
Michael Manion (Our Town),
Maura O’Brien (Becoming Dr Ruth),
Mark S Roberts (Judevine),
and Kim Ward (Disappearances) are all taking part.

and actor-singer Carolyn Wesley (Lyddie, Into the Woods).

Stories for the Season carries on Lost Nation Theater’s tradition of a holiday show after the close of It’s A Wonderful Life last year.
The company hopes to return with a “live radio show” play version of A Christmas Carol in 2019.

Meanwhile join LNT on December 19th to hear Gift of the Magi, The Power of Light, The Pine Tree, Herschel and the Hanukkah Goblins, The Pull-Together Morning, Why Hummingbird Has a Red Throat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and more. 

  • When asked why she chose “The Pine Tree” by Hans Christian Anderson, actor Carolyn Wesley offered,
    “It’s a good little morality tale on living in the moment, peppered with some wry Danish wit!”  

Much humor and wit, tenderness and wisdom will be peppered through this entire evening, fun for the whole family.

 

Admission is free, but tasty treats and warm beverages will be available for sale – along with Lost Nation Theater’s 2019 Season Tickets, Gift Cards, and Youth Theater Camps.
