Christmas Ghosts of 1944

About the Play

Christmas Ghosts of 1944 is short play centered around the defining life moments of George, played by local stage favorite Pat Stadille. We get a brief glimpse of what has led George to be the cantankerous lonely old man he is today via a series of dream sequences, triggered by a marathon of holiday shows on the TV that has become his constant companion.

A review of our Summer 2017 Productions

We had a fabulous summer at the theater with the world premiere of a local playwrights work “Pirate Booty” and phenomenal award winning shows like “Big-The Musical” with local directing legend Walt deFaria, “Pippin” and “Man of La Mancha” in collaboration with Paraphrase Productions, Films in the Forests and some fantastic special events in Carmel and around the peninsula!
