HOLIDAZED & CONFUSED

What makes the holidays truly magical? Is it Mariah Carey’s “All I
want for Christmas,” or the long-awaited reunion of family members
from far, far away? Perhaps it’s the hard work elves put into getting
the presents ready, or the opportunity to look back and reconnect with
loved ones through a medium. For the Theater Company of Lafayette
(TCL), it’s all of the above and more!

This play festival features 6 plays by exceptional playwrights, Andrew
Catterall, Katherine Dubois, Jeff Richards, Madge Montgomery, Paul
Wells, Jeremy Denning, and Andrew Fiamengo. The beauty of Holidazed
and Confused is how perfectly it embodies the spirit of Community
Theater and the holidays all at once. How? Playwrights get together to
write scripts in just two short weeks, and then work with directors
and actors to bring it all to life in less than a month. It’s all
about collaboration, creativity, and having fun together.

WHERE:
Mary Miller Theater, 300 East Simpson Street, Lafayette, CO 80026.

WHEN:
Three nights only! Friday, December 16, and Saturday, December 17 at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, December 18 at 2 pm. Tickets are $15 and $5 of each ticket goes to local charity Sister Carmen.
