Coney Island Christmas – Ivoryton Playhouse | December 13 – 23
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. This is a holiday show for people of all ages and all faiths and all ages and ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
About the Ivoryton Playhouse
The Ivoryton Playhouse is located in Ivoryton, a beautiful section of historic Essex, on the banks of the Connecticut River. The Playhouse has been an important part of Connecticut’s cultural landscape for over 100 years. It was one of America’s leading summer showplaces, presenting a parade of stars such as Katharine Hepburn, Marlon Brando, Tallulah Bankhead, Betty Grable, Mae West and many, many more.
Over the course of the past 30 years, the Ivoryton Playhouse Foundation has completed a total renovation of the building, including new shingles, a new heating and air-conditioning system, new seats and state-of-the-art theatrical sound and lighting systems. The building is now prepared to face the second century of its life.
Since 2006, under the Artistic Direction of Jacqueline Hubbard, the Foundation began producing a year round season of professional theatre. Today, the theatre produces seven professional shows annually, drawing audiences from New York and New Jersey to Massachusetts. The 280 seat theatre is comfortable and air-conditioned.
