A Christmas Story

For the tenth consecutive season, the popular holiday classic “A Christmas Story” portrays the riotous trials and travails of young Ralphie Parker on his quest for the one thing he wants for Christmas: a Red Ryder BB gun. His requests keep getting reproved with a “you’ll shoot your eye out” by his parents, teacher, and even Santa Claus so he’s not real sure he’s going to get it. On top of that, his skirmishes with his brother Randy and the school bully Scut Farkus leave him wondering if he’ll ever make it to Christmas at all. (Not included with the Season Ticket price.)
Because of events surrounding the flood we we decided to add a third weekend to “A Christmas Story,” which will include a free performance for flood victims and their families. While keeping in mind our own current challenges, this is also a time when the Ti-Ahwaga Players will do everything we can to give back to the community that has supported us for 53 years.

“Wait Until Dark”, written by By Frederick Knott, is a tense thriller with a heart-pounding final scene. A con man convinces Susy, the blind wife of Sam Hendrix, that the police have implicated Sam in a woman’s murder and that a doll he brought home from Canada is evidence. Believing it’s the key to his innocence, she refuses to reveal its location which starts a deadly game of cat and mouse that culminates in a dark night with the lights out leaving them both to maneuver in the dark until the game ends.

“Rumors” is a farcical comedy by Neil Simon about several affluent couples who gather in the posh residence of a couple for a dinner party celebrating their anniversary. When the couples arrive, they discover there are no servants, the hostess is missing, and the host—the deputy mayor of New York City—has shot himself through the earlobe. Comic complications arise when they decide they need to do everything possible to conceal the evening’s events from the local police and the media.

“Pippin,” with book by Roger O. Hirson and music & lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, is a hip, tongue-in-cheek, musical fairy tale that appeals to the young at heart everywhere. The energetic pop-influenced score by three-time Oscar®-winning composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz (“Godspell,” “Children of Eden” and the animated films “Pocahontas” and “The Hunchback Of Notre Dame”) bursts with one show stopping number after another, from soaring ballads to infectious dance numbers.
