The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis’ Imaginary Theatre Company will present public performances of "The Christmas Skates," a brand new holiday musical, Dec. 15-22 at Nerinx Hall High School. Written by Sarah Brandt, with music and lyrics by Nathanael McClure and directed by Alan Knoll, the production is a family-friendly holiday tale of sharing and friendship.
The true spirit of the holiday season shines brightly in this new musical adaptation of Mary Griggs Van Voorhis’s short story, “The Boy with the Box.” It’s nearly Christmas, and Tom Reynolds is excited to show off his brand new skates — that is, until someone shows up with a newer, better pair. Meanwhile, across town, Harvey McGinnis is thrilled with the meager gifts he’s managed to gather for his little sisters. Inspired by Harvey’s kindness and spirit, Tom hatches a plan to give his new friend a holiday surprise to remember.
Bringing this heartwarming story to life are ITC performers Myke Andrews, Charlie Barron, Lana Dvorak and Delaney Marie Piggins. Charlie Mueller is the production's music director, Scott Loebl is the scenic designer and Marci Franklin is the costume designer.
Performance times will be 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15; 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16; 4 and 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21; and 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 22. Estimated run-time is 50 minutes.
Tickets are $10 and are available at repstl.org or by phone at 314-968-4925.
