Based on the beloved 1944 Judy Garland film, this heartwarming musical was nominated for four Tony Awards -- including Best Musical and Best Original Score -- when it debuted on Broadway in 1989. The show follows the adventures of the Smith family (with particular focus on the romantic entanglements of the four Smith daughters), as they anxiously await the arrival of the 1904 World's Fair in their fair city. But their hopes may be crushed, and Christmas ruined, when Dad announces they're moving to New York. This production is filled with tender affection, genuine humor and unforgettable tunes like "The Trolley Song," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "The Boy Next Door." Learn More

Written & performed by Lynn Ruth Miller
Directed and staged by Lennon Smith
Farewell to the Tooth Fairy is Lynn Ruth Miller’s one-woman show about everyone’s power to create their own destiny. It charts Miller’s quest to discover where the enchantment is hidden in the life we live. Her journey of self-discovery is one each of us must take before we accept who we are and begin to enjoy the role we have chosen as our personal destiny. Each story is an inspiration and a chuckle about the immense variety of flavors our life offers.
The stories presented in this production were selected from “Thoughts While Walking the Dog,” and “More Thoughts While Walking the Dog,” Miller’s acclaimed collection of columns that originally appeared in The Pacifica Tribune. They include “The Melting Pot,” a description of the challenges of bridging two cultures at the turn of the century, “Saving the Downtrodden,” a picture of the unexpected results of idolizing Eleanor Roosevelt, “The Night the Dog Bit Prince Charming,” unexpected perks from a dog attack and the title story “Farewell to the Tooth Fairy,” a revelation of how magic happens for us all.
The show is 90 minutes of laughter and tears seasoned with an unvarnished dose of reality. It is everyone’s story, old as time and new as tomorrow. . . Not to be missed.
Lynn Ruth Miller has been published in various fields for 40 years. Her writing often deals with feminist issues and appeals to readers who enjoy Laurie Colwin for her ethnic flavor and commentary on the idiosyncrasies of modern life, and Anne Tyler for her slightly out of sync frame of reference.
Lennon Smith, the former president of The Spindrift Players has been acting and directing since her college years. Her most recent venture was the innovative production of Fuddy Meers at PSP. She has also directed at Coastal Rep in Half Moon Bay.
