The Winters Theatre Company will be presenting “Coney Island Christmas” at the Winters Community Center at 201 Railroad Avenue this upcoming holiday season. Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies weaves together nostalgia, music and merriment in this new seasonal classic.
A holiday show for people of all ages and all faiths, Coney Island Christmas introduces us to Shirley Abramowitz, a young Jewish girl who, much to her immigrant parents’ exasperation, is cast as Jesus in the school’s Christmas pageant. As Shirley, now much older, recounts the memorable story to her great-granddaughter, the play captures a timeless and universal tale of what it means to be an American during the holidays.
