A Connecticut Christmas Story
Home for the Holidays
by Jacqueline Hubbard
at Ivoryton Playhouse
Ivoryton: Take an unexpected blizzard, add a sprinkling of the Nutcracker, a pinch of Dickens’ Christmas Carol, stir in a little romance and festive song, top it all off with holiday magic and you get a new family tradition called Home for the Holidays premiering at the Ivoryton Playhouse on December 8.
Home for the Holidays is a new holiday show conceived and directed by Playhouse Executive/Artistic Director, Jacqueline Hubbard. “This has been such an important year for the Ivoryton Playhouse. Not only did we reach our 100th birthday but we weathered a hurricane that tore down our beautiful spruce and narrowly missed the building. I feel as though something was watching over us on that day and that was the inspiration for this story.”
Make Home for the Holidays part of your holiday tradition
This heart warming family story is filled with carols, new and old, and many faces familiar to Playhouse audiences. Cast includes Playhouse favorites – Beverley Taylor, Norm Rutty, Michael McDermott*, John Sebastian DeNicola, Maggie McGlone Jennings, Caroline Read, Alanna Burke, Celeste Cumming, Gayle LaBrec, Jason Naylor, Brandon Clark and Addison Marchese.
