Palace Players Production Benefits Hamilton Food Cupboard

(Hamilton, NY – Dec. 2011) The Palace Players are delighted to present a benefit holiday production of Dylan Thomas’ “A Child’s Christmas in Wales.”  The staged reading of this classic holiday story marks what the theater group hopes will be the first of a regular holiday tradition for the company and the community.

“A Child’s Christmas in Wales is a heart-warming reminiscence of all those things that make the holidays such a memorable time, especially for children – the family, the generosity, the carols, and the traditions,” said director Dominick Pangallo, who also adapted the script for the reading.  “Our goal is to offer a new family-friendly, holiday tradition for the community, to raise funds for a worthwhile local charity, and to bring to life one of Dylan Thomas’ most beloved stories.”

All of the proceeds from the production will be donated to the Hamilton Food Cupboard.  A volunteer from the Cupboard will be on hand during the half-hour reading to also collect donated goods and nonperishable food items.  The Cupboard has especially asked for donations of tea, coffee, and hot chocolate for this winter season.

The cast includes Harrison DuBois (Poolville), Wil Eberhart (Hamilton), Jan Webb Guistwite (Sherburne), Clara Lantz (Hamilton), Dave Lantz (Hamilton), Ian Leavitt (Earlville), and Adger Williams (Hamilton).

The reading will take place at the Palace Theater on Sunday Dec. 18 at 3 p.m.  Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door only.

The Palace Theater is located at 19 Utica St. in downtown Hamilton.
