The theater is a little tricky to find. Go west on Walnut off of Lemon Avenue and follow it up the hill around the curve to the left. You can't access Walnut from Harbor Blvd.

Get there early since seating is first come but theater is small (60-80?) so I think almost every seat is good. Limited parking right out front of theater.

Description

Comedy-drama about American G.I.s planning a escape from a German prison camp on Christmas Eve 1944, but there’s a problem: one of them is a German spy. Written by actual WWII veterans of Stalag 17_, Donald Bevan & Edmund Trzcinski. STALAG 17 is a riveting drama set inside a German POW camp during Christmas 1944. _Stalag 17 takes the life of a P.O.W. light without any deep or tragic psychological probing into the minds of men in war. However, under the circumstances that these characters are held, the plays light touch of humor is what keeps the men’s spirit up while they wait for the war to end. Because of the play’s Broadway success, it was subsequently turned into a movie by Billy Wilder that won William Holden his only Academy Award. In the sixties television created a very lighthearted spin off of the film called Hogan’s Heroes.

With colorful characters, a riveting plot and themes that parallel current events, Stalag 17 presents an alternative to the usual Christmas staples.
