Nicholas Barasch and More to Star in Irish Rep's A CHILD'S CHRISTMAS IN WALES
Irish Repertory Theatre announced casting for A Child's Christmas In Wales by Dylan Thomas (Under Milk Wood). Adapted & directed by Charlotte Moore (On A Clear Day You Can See Forever), A Child's Christmas In Wales begins performances on November 28, 2018 at Irish Rep Theatre (132 West 22nd Street) on the Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage, with an opening night set for December 3, and will run through December 30, 2018.
The cast of A Child's Christmas In Wales will include Nicholas Barasch (She Loves Me), Dewey Caddell (It's A Wonderful Life), Margaret Dudasik (Cabaret National Tour), Polly McKie (The Home Place), Naomi Louisa O'Connell (Master Class), and Ashley Robinson (A Clockwork Orange).
This holiday season experience a joyous musical celebration of Dylan Thomas's iconic story, A Child's Christmas in Wales, the "never to be forgotten day at the end of the unremembered year," when songs are sung, cakes and sweets are abundant, and the frozen city parks are laden with mysteries and adventures for wild boys and girls to explore. This favorite Irish Rep tradition features both classic and contemporary Christmas music interwoven with Thomas's story of a snowy Christmas Day in Wales.
Irish Rep previously staged A Child's Christmas in Wales in 2010, directed by Moore, in a production that The Associated Press said "leave[s] the audience feeling as though they're tucked inside a cozy, musical snowglobe." The production was revived, by popular demand, for the 2011 and 2015 holiday seasons.
A Child's Christmas In Wales will feature musical direction by John Bell (On A Clear Day You Can See Forever), scenic design by James Morgan (On A Clear Day You Can See Forever), costume design by Barbara A. Bell (A Taste of Honey), and lighting design by Michael Gottlieb (Woman and Scarecrow). Pamela Brusoski (The Home Place) will serve as Production Stage Manager.
The performance schedule for A Child's Christmas In Wales is as follows: Wednesdays at 3pm and 8pm; Thursdays at 7pm; Fridays at 8pm; Saturdays at 3pm and 8pm; and Sundays at 3pm. Exceptions: there will be no 8pm performance on Wednesday, December 5.
Tickets to A Child's Christmas in Wales range from $50-$70 and are available through Irish Rep's box office at 212-727-2737 or online at www.irishrep.org.
