Opens Winter Theater Season
KBC Productions announces that it will open the winter theater season at Mahoney State Park on December 3 with Tom Dudzick’s touching Christmas drama, “Greetings.” All performances take place at the Kountze Memorial Theater near the lodge inside of Mahoney State Park.
Greetings is the story of a mentally handicapped man named Mickey. He lives at home with his sweet Catholic mother and sour Catholic father. When older brother, Andy brings home a Jewish fiancée to meet his family on Christmas Eve, he fears the worst. However, that evening a small miracle occurs. Mickey, whose entire vocabulary consists of “Oh boy,” and “Wow,” suddenly blurts out, “Greetings!” the whole family is left to wonder how this is possible. It is a gentle heart-warming story for the whole family.
The production is directed by Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water. Starring in the production are Jim Knierim of Louisville, Stacy White and Shari Hoelker of Omaha and Chuck Danskin of Lincoln. Reprising the role of Mickey for the third time is Jim Frerichs of rural Dunbar.
Performances for “Greetings” are Dec 3-5, 10-12, 17-19 and 26-30. Adult tickets are $8. Children are priced at $6. Reservations can be made by calling Mahoney State Park at (402) 944-2523 ext. 7122. Curtain times are at 7:30pm except for Dec 5, 19 which are 2pm Sunday matinee performances. Mahoney State Park is located just off exit 426 on I-80 near the towns of Ashland and South Bend.
