Off Night Stories: Winter Holidays
at the Waldron Auditorium
Following the format of the popular live storytelling event produced by The Moth, “Off Night Stories: Winter Holidays” will feature a series of true stories about the holiday season, told live on stage in front of an audience. The show will include performances from new and well known artists, including Steve Scott, Greta Lind, Darrell Anne Stone and Richard Crowe.
“Off Night Stories: Winter Holidays” will be performed concert-style, with a live band (lead by Ben Jackson) providing original underscoring and interludes based on popular holiday music. Audiences can look forward to stories ranging from the heartfelt to the hilarious. You’ll hear about ambitious holiday cooking projects. You’ll learn what it’s like to travel cross country during the holidays with two toddlers when absolutely everything that can go wrong does go wrong. You’ll experience the magic of Mexico’s “ La Posadas,” and feel a family’s joy when their father appears unexpectedly on their doorstep on Christmas eve. From finding the strength to forgive, to finding the strength to leave, the stories in this production are a testament to the ways in which the holidays can bring out the best in all of us.
“There’s a theme across the foundational stories of all winter holidays,” director Aubrey Seader remarks, “which is that we can endure any season of darkness by finding light and hope in love and community. We think that during this time of year, no matter which holidays you celebrate, we can all benefit from hearing stories that share that common thread of love, community, and resilience.”
