HOLIDAY DELIGHTSA Holiday Season event featuring students from Gloucester Stage Youth Acting Workshops.
A Young Child’s Journey to Discover the Real Joys of the Holiday Season. Enjoy color costumes, classic winter tales, and over 50 performers singing your holiday favorites! Featuring students from the winter, summer and fall Youth Acting Workshops.
GSC’s Youth Acting Workshop’s Holiday Delights is a year-end showcase of student talent from YAW’s Winter, Summer and Fall Workshops, and features a cast of student actors and crew. Any student who completed a class session during the calendar year of the production is invited to join the cast. Holiday Delights affords the YAW students an opportunity to collaborate harmoniously on a professionally-run, large-scale theater project resulting in a three-performance run at Gloucester Stage Company. Conceived and directed by YAW’s program director, Heidi J. Dallin, this festive evening of stories, songs and dance recounts the special traditions that other cultures and families experience as seen through one young girl’s magical journey on Christmas Eve. During her Christmas Eve journey the young girl learns about the special traditions of other families and comes to realize the importance of her own family traditions. This family holiday event marks the twelfth time in Gloucester Stage history that a production has featured an entire cast of student actors from the Youth Program. First produced in 2007, Holiday Delights has proven to be an audience favorite, and has provided a nurturing and creative environment in the areas of stage performance, stagecraft and arts administration for YAW students.
