Come 30 minutes early, this is a nice place to be. Have a snack at the theater or take a short walk in the neighborhood.

Description

Enjoy an evening of hot cocoa, fruitcake and a tender reading of the Truman Capote classic A Christmas Memory, performed by Thomas Lynch, last seen as General Genghis Khan Schmitz in the Berkeley Playhouse smash debut, _Seussical, the Musical. _

Capote’s short story, often touted as one of the finest short stories written in the twentieth century, is a charming memoir about the love and friendship between a boy and his elderly cousin, and the adventures they share while they gather ingredients for their holiday fruitcakes.

Following this treat, local singing sensation Tamika Nicole will perform with Tal Ariel, and then lead the audience in an uplifting sing-along. Take a break from the holiday madness and enjoy a celebration reminiscent of simpler times.
