Email Header
Beasley's Christmas Party Header
Adapted by C.W. Munger
From the story by Booth Tarkington

Begins November 26

Just in time for the holiday season comes this creative new stage adaptation of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Booth Tarkington's novel, Beasley's Christmas Party. When a curious reporter finds himself living next to a reclusive and eccentric gubernatorial candidate, he launches an investigation and uncovers a surprising and inspirational holiday revelation. 
Magically and imaginatively delivered, it is a distinctly American and spiritually uplifting story for the whole family filled with humor, heart and hope.
