December is always such a busy month. The year is winding down; gatherings and party invitations seem to be almost non-stop. Not enough time to take it all in!
But save an evening or two for a fun get-together at the historic Howmet Playhouse in downtown Whitehall. Saturday, Dec. 12 at 4 pm, enjoy “A Christmas Tree-O” the spirit of the season in three mini plays as part of the Hometown Holiday Weekend activities. Master Arts Theatre of Grand Rapids celebrates the season through the arts. A family-appropriate production sharing “the meaning of the season” with the series: “A Christmas of Many Parts” (the story of the Nativity); “Window of His Love” (follow Mary and Joseph through their fascinating journey) ; and as a special bonus “Traditional Mime Performance” will be included. This program is sure to delight and inspire!
The holiday festivities and family fun continue at the Howmet Playhouse on Friday, Dec. 18 at 7:30 pm. “Christmas Carol Concert Benefit” hosted by the Howmet Playhouse will feature a mix of traditional and contemporary Christmas musical performances by local musicians and former Playhouse staff, Christina Inez Bell, Cassidy Anne Caswell, Jailynne Peppel and Lorrell Peppel. Local and syndicated author, David Walks-as-Bear will present American Indian traditional gift-giving stories. The evening will conclude with a chorus and audience classic holiday sing-along.
Located directly across the street from the White Swan Inn B&B, Howmet Playhouse is such a wonderful treasure for Whitehall and the surrounding area.
