The Winters Theatre Company is now presenting “Coney Island Christmas” at the Winters Community Center at 201 Railroad Avenue. 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.
- There will be a special showing on Thursday December 5th at 7:30pm.
- Please note there won’t be a show on Friday December 6th.
- Saturday December 7th show will be at 7:30pm, but allow plenty of extra time for parking as the Winters Holiday Tractor Parade will be taking place that evening as well. Better yet, come spend the day in Winters, enjoy an early dinner, the tractor parade, and then the show!
- The closing show will be at 2pm on Sunday December 8th.
Ticket prices are $12 for adults, and $10 for seniors and children 12 and under.
