Abingdon to Stage Special Holiday Benefit Presentation of FAIRIES, 12/17

The Sunday Series at Abingdon will present a special one night only Holiday performance of playwright Charles Messina's hysterical one act, FAIRIES. Proceeds will benefit the programs of the not-for-profit Abingdon Theatre.

FAIRIES tells the tale of what happens when Santa, the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, Tom Turkey and Cupid all show up at a little boy's house on the same night by accident. Fairies had premired at Abingdon as part of the Sunday Series back in September, and it was so beloved by audiences that the theater decided to return it for this special holiday benefit presentation.

The stellar cast for the one-acts includes Alfredo Diaz, Johnny Tammaro, Steven LaChioma, Nick Fondulis, MichaeL Barbieri, Khalid Goncalves, and Scott Seidman.

Charles Messina has become a strong voice on the NY theatre scene. His plays present a world that is wholly and uniquely New York. In addition to directing the long-running show The Accidental Pervert, starring Andrew Goffman, he also has his autobiographical comedy A Room of My Own, starring Mario Cantone and Ralph Macchio being developed for Broadway. Messina has also penned the musical The Wanderer about the life and music of Dion. Mr. Messina's Mercury: The Afterlife and Times of a Rock God about the life of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury has also received across-the-board critical acclaim. All proceeds from FAIRIES will benefit the not-for-profit Abingdon Theatre Company. Since 1993, the Abingdon Theatre Company has developed and produced new plays by American Playwrights exclusively. Under the artistic direction of Jan Buttram, the company provides a safe home in which playwrights collaborate with other theatre artists and receive audience feedback through the utilization of our four-step development process: First Readings, Staged Readings, and Workout Labs, which culminate in Studio Productions and Mainstage Productions. ATC is now celebrating its 21st season. Find more information at

The show begins at 7pm. Ticket are $20. For tickets call (866)811-4111 or visit
