(Hamilton, NY- Dec. 2012) The Palace Players are delighted to present their holiday production of Dylan Thomas’ “A Child’s Christmas in Wales.” The staged reading of this classic story benefits the greater Hamilton community and is an annual 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 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. In addition, the audience is invited to donate dry 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), Sam Williams (Hamilton), Jan Webb Guistwite (Sherburne), Clara Lantz (Hamilton), Fred von Mechow (Sherburne), and Adger Williams (Hamilton).
The reading will take place at the Palace Theater on Sunday Dec. 9 at 3:30 p.m. in the Underground. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased by calling The Palace Theater or at the door. Seating is limited so reservations are strongly recommended.
The Palace Theater is located at 19 Utica St. t in downtown Hamilton.
