AN ATLANTA CHRISTMAS, now in its 13th consecutive year of production, is told in a series of short, distinct vignettes, joined together by the image of a family gathered around the Christmas tree. This year they celebrate the expansion of Thomas E. Fuller's original concept through the efforts of our own in-house writers & the work of the Academy Theatre as they bring you tales of the solstice, one woman's own personal Christmas tradition, and the zanier size of the season with our own holiday specials.

This show is presented as a gift to their listeners and to the city which they call home. Tickets are "Name your price," so feel free to donate as much as you feel the experience is worth to you. This presentation is also a benefit for the Center for the Visually Impaired, who will receive 25% of ticket donations. Weekends December 8-16. Saturday shows at 8:00 pm, Sunday shows at 2:30 pm
