Write Out Loud to Present THE GIVING SEASON at Old Town Theatre

Write Out Loud - an organization founded in 2007 with a commitment to inspire, challenge and entertain by reading short stories aloud for a live audience announces THE GIVING SEASON - CHRISTMAS IN NEW YORK on Monday, December 13th at the Old Town Theatre. Write Out Loud Story Concerts bring literature to life - aloud - with rehearsed readings by professional actors. Each program explores specific themes by weaving a variety of stories, poems, and sometimes music, together into a literary tapestry. A pre-show reception starts at 6:15pm with a 7:00pm curtain.

Performers include Paul Maley, Rachael VanWormer, Walter Ritter and Veronica Murphy. Music of the season provided by Mark Danisovzsky.

Artistic Director, Veronica Murphy, shared "This New York theme was inspired by a recent concert at The Shell featuring the music of Frank Loesser. Listening to the fabulous songs from Guys and Dolls based on Damon Runyon's New York brought to mind a terrific Runyon Christmas story that I've long wanted to include in our holiday offering but it never quite fit. So, I decided to shape a program around it, bringing together gangsters, children and angels - essential for any good Christmas program."
