Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt bring the bold, adventurous theatrical techniques they pioneered in THE FANTASTICKS a step further with CELEBRATION, an allegorical winter's tale.

On a magical New Year's Eve, a young Orphan stumbles into the home of the richest man in the world, whose bizarre entourage includes a beautiful fallen Angel. With the Orphan's help, the jaded Mr. Rich regains his humanity, only to find himself locked in ritualistic battle with the youth for the Angel's love.

The show's small cast is perfect for an intimate community theatre space. Audiences are encouraged to participate in this very original piece of theatre.
