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

My husband and I took our 6 year old son. The theater was smaller than I expected. When we walked into the cabaret waiting room, I started to wonder if the show would be appropriate for my son. I am glad to say he had a great time. There were several other families with kids too. Afterwards we showed our son the old Hobbit animated movie. He liked the play better!
Directed by Nathan Makaryk
The Maverick Theatre is bringing to the stage The Hobbit, the enchanting first installment of J.R.R. Tolkien’s middle earth saga (and prelude to The Lord of the Rings). Director Nathan Makaryk’s inspired use of visual effects produces mammoth creatures within touch of the audience, and maintains the high-stakes tone for title character Bilbo Baggins’ journey across Middle Earth.
The Hobbit follows the dwarves’ quest to take back their gold and silver, stolen by the menacing dragon, Smaug. Bilbo, a simple, timid hobbit is recruited as official burglar by the wizard Gandalf. Along their way, they encounter fantastical and daunting enemies, as well as run-ins with unexpected rivals. And Bilbo Baggins’ discovery of a magic ring paves the way for the epic adventure yet to come. Using all elements of theatrics and stage combat, director Makaryk heaps a pulsing plenty of edge-of-your-seat action into the audience.
