You can expect a lot of laughs this year's Lamb's Players' Festival of Christmas show, when a woman's plan to film a musical Christmas card goes hilariously awry. In Catch a Falling Star, Ella Eden has located the remote miner's cabin where her father spent one magical Christmas, and now she's bringing in a band to put together the ultimate Christmas card on location. With the special setting, under a gorgeous canopy of stars, it's going to be the perfect gift. Too bad her kids are running wild, neither the nanny nor the lead singer have shown up and cell phone reception is nonexistent. As things get more chaotic, they also become ever more comical, but the magic and music of Christmas will triumph in the end. Learn More

"Wit" is indeed witty, funny at times, and by turns visceral, tragic, and beautiful. Capably supported by fine actors,including local legends Jim Chovick and Sylvia M’Lafi Thompson, and a notably tender, sensitive turn by Cynthia Gerber, it is Deborah Gilmour Smyth's amazing (even devastating) portrayal of Professor ("Doctor of Philosophy") Vivian Bearing on which the entire play rests. As a devoted theatregoer I must say that hers is one of the most honest, hard-to-watch-yet-harder-to-turn-away-from performances I've ever had both the pleasure and pain to see.
