A Christmas Memory -paired with- Winter Song

A cozy celebration of winter.

November 24 – December 30, 2018
In the Ellyn Bye Studio

“This show is like comfort food — warm, nourishing, and just exactly what you want on a cold winter’s night.” —BroadwayWorld

Music and stories come together in this cozy celebration of winter. In A Christmas Memory, Truman Capote’s rural Alabama boyhood comes to life, offering a touching portrait of an enduring friendship and tender holiday rituals. This gem of a story is paired with Winter Song, a collection of beloved tunes and tales that celebrate winter and all it represents: love, family, solitude, renewal and warmth.
