This semi-formal event, the first-ever fundraiser for the Mysterium Theater, promises a full evening of top-flight entertainment. First up at A Winter's Eve is a wine and appetizer reception, where you can browse and bid on silent auction items. That's followed by a seated dinner, set to include Cornish game hen, an orzo and vegetable combo, salad, dessert and hot cider, or wassail. Then you'll be treated to a musical revue featuring hits from the Great American Songbook by the Gershwins, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, performed by a cast of 24 of Mysterium's finest actor-singers. As a capper to this festive evening, take advantage of the quick ballroom and swing lesson, so you can dance the rest of the night away to big-band music. Learn More
<p>Humorous tunes include “Something Funny’s Going On”, “Good To Be Alive”, “Rita’s Confession”, “Fancy Meeting You Here” and “Times Like This.” </p>
<p>Director’s note: </p>
<p>Lucky Stiff is a difficult musical to describe the best I can do when asked is say, “imagine a story where Weekend at Bernie’s meets Monty Python, toss in some elements of The Godfather and Feydeau-like farce, and then add a score by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.”
Confused? Don’t be. Once you see it, you’ll see what I mean. Despite the somewhat macabre premise, Lucky Stiff is enchanting a fast paced romp, a timeless story about falling in love, and a gentle reminder that we can’t live life fully unless we take a chance once in a while. Luck must be seized when the opportunity presents itself. Life is a gamble. It involves risk, and sometimes comes with pain and hurt but to “win big,” you must be willing to take a chance. And, when you do, your life can change for the better! </p>
