A Season of Miracles visits O. Henry’s The Gift of the Magi; an original scene in Nigeria entitled The Kwanzaa Kite; a story based on the wise men of Chelm folklore called The Chanukah Miracle; and E.T.A. Hoffmann’s The Nutcracker. Every tale reflects the spirit of the holidays and the people that celebrate them.
“As for miracles?” noted Fost, “they are within us all and at the heart of each story. Miracles are the gifts of love, kindness, caring, and sharing.”
Holiday Tales—A Season of Miracles features Oscar Castillo, Stacie Gogo, Dana Patrice, and Danny Sims, all playing myriad characters to illuminate the stories.
Dana Patrice performed in Lighthouse Opera of NJ’s production of Ragtime at South Orange PAC. She was featured in CDC Theater’s stage in Vagina Monologues and Once Upon a Mattress. She appeared in Expiration Date at The Tank in NYC for the Wet Paint play festival, OLT’s Side Show, The Musical, and Aida.
