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

Begins This Friday!

Just in time for the holiday season comes this creative new stage adaptation of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Booth Tarkington's novella, Beasley's Christmas Party. When a curious reporter finds himself living next door 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 holiday story for the whole family filled with humor, heart and hope.
