It's Christmas Eve in 1852 and at a cabin in the Sierras, a pair of miners have their carefree existence turned upside-down when they chance upon an orphaned infant in The Christmas Foundling. Over the ensuing years, the boy binds a loose-knit group of miners into a family, as they discover that the greatest wealth sometimes comes in surprising packages. Written by award-winning playwright and PBS favorite Norman Allen (Nijinsky's Last Dance, In the Garden, The Christmas Carol Rag), The Christmas Foundling is a heartwarming tale that's rich with the spirit of the season and filled with traditional folk music and carols.

I DID attend this event. The hardest part about the who process was filling out this review - took me 3 tries. Kept coming up as having not attended. Anyway - loved the show. Lots of fun. Men or women can relate to the story and setting. Superbly cast-particularly Jim Bitney as Albert Soady. Humorous script by actor/writer Jeff Daniels. Wonderful showboat venue on the beautiful river with the fall colors.
Escanaba in da Moonlight
a hilarious comedy by Jeff Daniels
Set on the eve of the opening day of deer season in 1989, Escanaba in da Moonlight tells the story of Reuben Soady, the only son in a family of Upper Peninsula hunters, never to bag a buck. Joined by his pop Albert, brother Remnar, and local oddball Jimmer Negamanee, Reuben is hoping to get his shot and shed the mantle of the buckless yooper. But before dawn approaches, the arrival of a strange DNR ranger and a series of strange occurrences threaten Reubens ultimate goal. Will he bag the buck? Or go down in family history as a failure?
