The National Theatre of the Deaf takes a nostalgic journey back into time through the eyes of poet Dylan Thomas with an adaptation of “A Child’s Christmas in Wales,” performed in both the beauty of American Sign Language and spoken word at Ivoryton Playhouse.

Holidays are filled with our childhood memories; family gatherings, games with friends, the excitement, the anticipation and the special quiet moments.  Thomas captures the magic of the season in this beautiful story filled with crazy aunts and uncles, snowball fights and sibling rivalries and one very special gift that changed his life.

The evening will also include stories and songs of the season, games and a whole lot of family fun. Directed by Brian Jennings and conceived by Betty Beekman, the cast includes Christina Stevens, Joey Caverly, Christina Cogswell and Taylor Curtis as well as a chorus of local singers. Production designed by Marcus Abbott.

A Child’s Christmas in Wales opens tonight and runs thru Dec. 16. Performance times are Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 pm; Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $30 for adults, $28 for seniors, $20 for students and $15 for children and are available by calling the Playhouse box office at 860-767-7318 or by visiting our website at www.ivorytonplayhouse.org (Group rates are available by calling the box office for information.) The Playhouse is located at 103 Main Street in Ivoryton.
