Celebration - 1969 - Broadway

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.

I'm not one to go to events or trips by myself mostly because that's out of my comfort zone and I've gotten used to doing things with my friends or family. So when the opportunity came up to go to a minor league baseball game, but no one I knew could go, I was faced with the question of do I miss out on something I want to do because of my comfort level or do I step out of where I feel 'safe' and go?

Over nine hundred paintings dating back god-knows-how-long, in their eyes. Something inside of them knew that they needed to preserve it, so they camped out day and night to protect it. Then WWII started, and they enrolled in the French resistance.
