Boise Contemporary Theater's Children's Reading Series Continues with CHRISTMAS EVERY DAY Today
Boise Contemporary Theater's Children's Reading Series, will present CHRISTMAS EVERY DAY adapted by Dano Madden and Jenny Sternling from the short story by William Dean Howells today, December 15 at 2pm.
There was a little girl who loved Christmas very, very much-all the presents, Santa Claus bringing all those presents, candy, more candy, more presents, and, as her Mum says, the magic of giving. She loved it so much, in fact, that the little girl wished for Christmas to come every day! And so, the girl embarks on a letter writing campaign to The Christmas Fairy, the most underappreciated of all the holiday icons (it's always Santa this and Ghost of Christmas Past that), begging that her wish be granted. Impressed by the girl's stellar punctuation-people just don't write letters like they used to-The Fairy agrees: from now until forever, it shall be Christmas every day! At first, nonstop Christmas is exciting and fun for everyone, but serious trouble soon begins, and the girl realizes that no wish comes without great cost. With the help of The Christmas Fairy, the little girl finds the courage to set things right and discovers, at last, what the magic of Christmas truly means.
