About A Child’s Christmas

A holiday pairing of ensemble member Jessica Wright Buha’s adaptation of "A Child's Christmas in Wales" by Dylan Thomas, and a reading of "A Christmas Memory" by Truman Capote (read with permission of the Truman Capote Literary Trust) on December 5, directed by ensemble member Elise Kauzlaric.

This reading will feature numerous Lifeline ensemble actors and returning favorites.

Each evening begins at 6:00pm with a light supper and wine/beer (plus conversation with Lifeline ensemble, staff, and board members). At 7:00pm, the performances start. (Script times vary, but are approximately two and a half hours in length.) An intermission allows for refills of wine or water, and after the reading coffee and dessert are served.

What is a concert reading?

Actors will present the play reading from scripts, typically at music stands. Our concert readings are rehearsed performances with a minimal amount of movement. Occasionally, stage directions will be read if necessary for following the story. There is no scenery, but minimal sound/light/costuming effects may be incorporated.

Our returning fans liken the experience to enjoying a live radio play, with a strong focus on language and performance.
