South Bend Civic Theatre presents two holiday gifts: the charming musical She Loves Me and the heartwarming A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas Nov 30-December 16.
She Loves Me features a Christmas setting with old world charm and as a holiday offering is an elegant treat. Perfume shop co-workers Georg and Amalia dislike each other at first sight. Arguing and feuding, each only takes comfort in growing affections with their respective anonymous pen pals – unaware they are corresponding with each other! Lovely music by the team who created Fiddler on the Roof makes this a delightful gem of true romance and holiday cheer.
A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas written by Laurie Brooks draws from the stories read by millions worldwide and made famous on television as “Little House on the Prairie.” The play finds the Ingalls family forced to relocate after a harsh winter to work at a hotel in Iowa. While there Laura runs afoul of “the meanest boy in Iowa” and works for Mrs. Starr, the richest woman in town. When Mrs. Starr offers a chance at living in comfort, Laura is forced to make a decision that could mean relief for her loved ones but separate her from her beloved family. Sara Bartlett directs this show for the whole family.
Tickets for She Loves Me are $21 Friday, Saturday, and Sunday; $18 Wednesday and Thursday. Performances are in the Wilson Mainstage Auditorium November 30-December 16 Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, Sundays at 3 PM and Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 PM.
Tickets for A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas are $10 or 4 for $32. Performances are December 1-15, 2 PM Saturdays and 7 PM Sundays. SBCT is offering a special ticket price of $25 for a single ticket to both shows. Please call the box office at 574-234-1112 or go online at sbct.org.
