Details:Two Holiday Shows from Island Stage Left
Designed to be inclusive, Island Stage Left’s “Christmas Memories” and “Omnium Gatherum” will run on different nights in the Marie Boe Building at the San Juan County Fairgrounds, December 14-24.
“They’re both such popular shows, we thought since we didn’t have a Christmas show last year we would give people a choice,” says director Helen Machin-Smith.

The programs are joyous celebrations of the season, designed to be inclusive. There is something for everyone. They mix live music, stories and poetry, but in entirely different ways. “Christmas Memories” takes the audience to a small town in Wales, and a child’s view of the winter world a hundred years ago. This year’s show brings Penelope Haskew’s delightful voice to join Mayes in music of the time, interwoven with the story. (December 14, 15, 19, 21, 23)
“Omnium Gatherum” is a different kettle of fish: “From the ridiculous to the sublime,” says Machin-Smith. It’s a carefully arranged mix of music, poetry, anecdotes and stories. Machin-Smith changes the show a bit each year: “I like a balance of things that are nostalgic, things that make people think, and that make people laugh. Unusual things that you don’t usually associate with a Christmas program.” (Shows December 18, 20, 22, 24)
All shows at 7:30 EXCEPT: Sunday shows at 4pm

December 24 shows at 4pm and 6:30 pm.
