A pre-show reception starts at 6:15 p.m. with a 7 p.m. curtain.

Write Out Loud Artistic Director, Veronica Murphy shares, “with Voices of Christmas, we are excited to step away from the commercialism of the holidays, and focus on the heart of the season. The stories focus on finding the joy of personal relationships and giving whatever you have to give while navigating tradition and our human frailties. Along with these character driven holiday stories and poems, we are thrilled to include the beautiful and haunting holiday music of Ireland by The Celtic Echoes.”

• “A Christmas Memory” by Truman Capote – read by Stephen J. Warner
