GLOUCESTER STAGE HOLIDAY DELIGHTS RETURNS FOR SEVENTH YEAR1
Gloucester Stage Youth Acting Workshops
A Holiday Season Event for All Ages Featuring Students from Gloucester Stage Youth Acting Workshops
The Gloucester Stage Youth Acting Workshops proudly presents Holiday Delights on Friday, December 11 at 7:30 pm and Saturday, December 12 at 2:00 pm at Gloucester Stage Company, 267 East Main Street, Gloucester. Holiday Delights features a cast of over 40 young people ranging in age from 6 to 17, all students in Gloucester Stage Youth Acting Workshops. This family holiday event marks the seventh time in Gloucester Stage history that a production has featured a cast of student actors from the Gloucester Stage Youth Acting Workshop Program. First produced in 2007, Holiday Delights has become an audience favorite and Cape Ann holiday tradition. Conceived and directed by Gloucester Stage YAW Director and teacher Heidi Dallin, Holiday Delights is a festive evening of stories, songs, and dance recounting the special traditions that other cultures and families experience as seen through one young girl’s magical journey on Christmas Eve to discover what is really important during the holiday season. The 40 young actors bring the original and classic stories to life on stage with a fresh perspective. Many actors play multiple roles in the production to bring all the stories to life. Holiday Delights features over 100 costume changes, Irish step dancing, folk dancing and a traditional Hebrew dance with the added twist of dancing dreidels; classic holiday music including Deck The Halls; Three Ships, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, and a holiday sing a long with the audience. Holiday Delights performance times are 7:30 pm on December 11, and 2 pm on December 12. Ticket prices are $15 for Adults; $12 for Senior Citizens, $8 for Students and $6 for Children under 12.
