Performing at Gloucester Stage December 9, 10 & 11, 2016
Conceived and directed by Youth Acting Workshop’s program director, Heidi J. Dallin, this festive evening of stories, songs, and dance recounts the special traditions that other cultures and families experience as seen through one young girl’s magical journey on Christmas Eve. During her Christmas Eve journey the young girl learns about the special traditions of other families and comes to realize the importance of her own family traditions. This family holiday event marks the fifth time in Gloucester Stage history that a production has featured an entire cast of student actors from the Youth Program. First produced in 2007, Holiday Delights has proven to be an audience favorite, and has provided a nurturing and creative environment in the areas of stage performance, stagecraft and arts administration for YAW students.
