Let some of Dallas’ best actors tell you a story. The winter solstice has inspired storytellers for thousands of years from cultures all over the world.

Dallas-favorite performers Denise Lee, Paul Taylor, Marti Etheridge, Ian Mead Moore, and Sara Prejean will celebrate the holidays with Solstice: Stories and Songs for the Holidays, a unique family-friendly collaboration from Michael Federico and Jeffrey Schmidt.

The evening revolves around Aunt Brighid, who keeps her niece calm through the winter solstice—the longest night of the year—by eliciting the help of magical creatures and other beings to tell the girl stories and sing her songs related to the holiday season.

Pieces performed and interpreted throughout the evening a mostly forgotten Santa Claus origin story by Frank L. Baum (author of The Wizard of Oz), a story about an Italian witch from Philidelphia who encounters the Three Wise Men, poems from Longfellow, Frost and contemporary poet Susan Cooper, as well as short plays and new music created by local Dallas storytellers and musicians.

November 24–December 17: 7:30pm Thursdays; 8pm Fridays–Saturdays; 2:30pm Sundays

Interpreted performance: Thursday, November 30 at 7:30pm

Hooky Matinee: Wednesday, December 6 at 2pm

Audiences can also get into the giving spirit by participating in Theatre Three’s Solstice Book Drive, benefiting local non-profit Readers 2 Leaders. The organization is a Dallas-based literacy program helping underserved children ages 3-12 so that they succeed in school and graduate prepared to live productive lives. Theatre Three will be collecting gently used children’s and early reader books in the lobby, and all materials will be donated to Readers 2 Leaders’ Lending Library.
