Script in Hand: Holiday Play with Music at Westport Country Playhouse

The Greatest Gift, a special family holiday playreading with music, will be presented by Westport Country Playhouse in association with Bisno Productions as part of the Playhouse’s popular Script in Hand series, on Monday, Dec.13 at 7 pm. Tickets to the one-night-only event are $15.

With book and lyrics by David Wiltse and music by Denis King, this new play tells the story of the Smith-Goldman family who celebrate the holiday season in their own way. When 8-year-old Emma bumps her head in a fall, sending her into a fantastical dream world, she and her parents discover that what really matters has nothing to do with gifts and ritual and all to do with who you love.

The cast includes Jeremy Peter Johnson as Daniel/Grandfather; Stacie Morgain Lewis as Jill/Grandmother; Howard McGillin as Oscar/Showman; Orly Salik of Westport as Emma; and Luke Sauer of Westport as Young Daniel. Actors are subject to change.

In addition to The Greatest Gift, the Playhouse’s upcoming December events include Seasons with Tracie Thoms, a concert, on Friday, Dec.10; The Clowns and Mr. Beckett, an evening with Bill Irwin and Doug Skinner, on Saturday, Dec. 11; Season’s Greetings, a family festivities afternoon, on Sunday, Dec. 12; and The Broadway Boys, a holiday concert Broadway style, on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 18 and 19.
