Parking is free just south of the theater. Beware, Roosevelt Road from Lake Shore Drive is a nightmare of construction and traffic. If you can take another route there do so or allow double the normal time to get there

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

Description

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
