Throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland, Christmas is the season for Pantos.  With a nod toward this theatrical tradition, local director and playwright Michelle Schwantes has created a new play with music:  Christmas Craic:  An Irish Family Christmas.  Whereas Pantos traditionally are irreverent adaptations of fairy tales, Christmas Craic is based on legends and stories, complete with terrifying giants, impudent humor, and rowdy mischief.  In this family celebration, each cast member plays multiple roles and the audience is invited to participate as distant members of the McCool family.  


Out of the Mist Celtic Theatre and the Maplewood Area Historical Society bring you Christmas Craic: An Irish Family Christmas  on December 8, 10, 15, 16 at 7:00 pm, and December 10 and 17 at 2:00 pm.  Tickets are $20 for adults (18+), and $10 for youth 17 and under.  All performances are in the barn at the Bruentrup Historical Farm at 2170 County Rd.
