Excellent theatrical experience, marred only somewhat by the too sudden change of heart of the title character. Such joyful theatre should always be encouraged and supported.

Charming Christmas story. Well acted but I wish the actors had been louder. It was hard to hear, especially the children.

Written By Tim Gregory and Michael Mahler

Directed by Tim Gregory

After a critically acclaimed world-premiere production last season, this beautiful, moving holiday treat is back by popular demand. When a broken-hearted boy loses the treasured wooden nativity given to him by his now deceased father, his mother goes to the local woodcarver in hopes of obtaining a replacement. Jonathan Toomey, known to the village as “Mr. Gloomy” takes the job – but refuses to promise anything by Christmas. But when Thomas decides to watch the woodcarver work, the commission takes their relationship to unexpected places; even as Christmas approaches, the real miracle is the transformation created in each of their lives. 

Based on the award-winning children’s book by Susan Wojchiechowski 

Starring Provision Theater Company member Susan Moniz
