(Nov. 30, 2017) The Ocean Pines Players welcome all to usher in the Christmas season by watching the group spoof time-honored holiday traditions.
The play by Michael Carlton, Jim FitzGerald and John K. Alvarez, with original music by Will Knapp, will be performed as an interactive dramatic reading. The energetic cast offers alternative interpretations of some stories, questions others, regales the audience with holiday traditions (both real and imagined) from other lands, entertains with some favorite holiday songs and leads the audience in some good old-fashioned traditional caroling, to remember the true meaning of the season.
There will be three performances: Friday, Dec. 1 and Saturday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m, and a 3 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Dec. 3 at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 103rd and Coastal Highway, in Ocean City.
Admission is $15 and includes coffee and dessert at intermission. There is plenty of free parking at the church and all proceeds will be split between the Ocean Pines Players Youth Performing Arts Scholarship and the essential community service programs of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, including the Cold Weather Shelter, Open Kettle lunches and clothing and food drives.
For more information, call 410-600-0462. The Ocean Pines Players is an all-volunteer local 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization. Funding for this event is provided in part by the Worcester County Arts Council, Maryland State Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, organizations dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive.
