“Holiday Tales” is a multi-cultural musical collection of holiday stories from different cultures, including Christmas, Kwanzaa and Chanukah. Tales included within the play are O. Henry’s “The Gift of the Magi,” E. T. A. Hoffmann’s “The Nutcracker,” “A Chanukah Miracle,” a Chelm story and an original story, “The Kwanzaa Kite,” set in Nigeria. Crafted and set to music with the timeless tone of each classic piece, this multi-cultural presentation is designed to warm the hearts and perhaps change the perspective of young audiences as they think about the true meaning and spirit of the holiday season.
