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

A wonderful evening of Shakespeare. Well acted and staged. It is a complicated tragic story that unfortunately is too true in many ways. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would recommend it to all! It was also a nice night for an outdoor theater. There isn't a bad seat in the house!
The Tragedie of King Lear
Starring Dennis Krausnick
A test of love is only the beginning of one old man's journey on the path to Hell. Considered by many to be William Shakespeare's greatest tragedy, Lear is about repercussions of pride and vanity that eventually lead to the fatal destruction of both the great king and all who are of real importance to him. Lear is a metaphorical epic—a story of violence, lust, betrayal, madness, and the predatory side of human nature.
