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

The actors and actresses were all talented, I got into the story, and some parts were very funny. Everyone in my group enjoy the play- we plan to go again. The theater was small and cozy, and under the moon with fresh air- it was an evening well spent
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Thomas F. Bradac
The Bard's treatise on Mercy and Justice. Themes of humanity, dignity, revenge, cruelty, and greed are all explored in the character of Shylock, one of Shakespeare's most tragic figures. Placed within the structure of a romantic comedy against the background of Medieval Venice, this is both Shylock's story, and a conflict of two fundamental religious ideologies.
