Planet Christmas
Contemporary Theater Company
327 Main ST.
Wakefield, Rhode Island

from the press release:

Whether you love the carols, decorations, and stories of Christmas or find the constant barrage of commercialized holiday cheer exhausting, Planet Christmas, a new play opening December 4 and receiving its world-premiere at the Contemporary Theater Company, is sure to delight.
Funny and poignant with a touch of "Bah Humbug," Planet Christmas follows Christmases over hundreds of years in the small coastal town of Pine Beach. From the first European pilgrim to ceaseless holiday music at the Planet Christmas superstore to the far distant future, Christmas is a constant, reminding us of our shared sentimentality and exasperation.

The play contrasts cheerful carols and cynical quips but ultimately reminds us of what the holidays really mean - family togetherness – whether it’s the family you’re given, or the family you choose.
Performance dates: Dec 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 20 at 7 p.m. and Dec 13 and 20 at 2 p.m.
