A Christmas production for kids that is geared for the entire family opens Saturday afternoon (Dec. 6) at Orange Coast College.
The show is being staged by OCC's Repertory Theatre Company.
Titled "An Old-Fashioned Melodrama and Ice Cream Social," the holiday production runs Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 6-7, and Friday through Sunday, Dec. 12-14, in OCC's Drama Lab Theatre. Curtain is set for 7 p.m. Friday through Sunday nights, and 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
The show, under the direction of OCC theatre arts professor, Rick Golson, features an evening of music, vaudeville acts, and the college's traditional holiday melodrama. This year's melodrama, written by Orange Coast College theatre instructor and designer, David Scaglione, is titled "The Lodge of the Slender Pine." The production is geared for the entire family.
Rudolph Nieman, a native of South Africa, will sing a South African Christmas carol. Everyone in attendance will be treated to a free ice cream favor. There will also be a visit by Santa, so parents are advised to bring their cameras.
