A Christmas Carol

December 5 - 24, 2018

Directed by Rachael Campbell

This will be Northside’s 36th production of this holiday event! This stage adaptation of the Dickens classic captures all the power, humor, and warmth this ageless tale has to offer.

This is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a lonely miser, who, through the help of spirits and visions from his past, present and future, finds a second chance to become a loving, generous, and kind human being.

by Kenneth Lonergan

In 1982, on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the wealthy, articulate pot-smoking teenagers who were small children in the '60s have emerged as young adults in a country that has just resoundingly rejected everything they were brought up to believe in. The very last wave of New York City's '60s-style Liberalism has come of age—and there's nowhere left to go.

 

In meticulous, hilarious, and agonizing detail, THIS IS OUR YOUTH follows forty-eight hours of three very lost young souls in the big city at the dawn of the Reagan Era.

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month's paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who's made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

Join us for one of Shakespeare's most popular plays! The Taming of Shrew tells the story of Katherine and Petruchio, two hot-headed lovers on opposite sides of the marriage issue: he wants it, she doesn't!

 

When our tale opens, Baptista is desperate to marry off his head-strong eldest daughter, Petruchio is anxious for a wealthy bride, and Katherine is having none of it.  As their impassioned battle of wills goes on, both realize that there is more to the other than meets the eye. Can they come to a meeting of the minds (and hearts)? Can they have a true marriage of equals? And does love really conquer all?
