Holiday Lites

Written by MS Wulfgar, Moira Mangiamelli, Jason Levering, and Katt Walsh

December 9 - 18

Benson Theatre

DIRECTIONS

Omaha-original, interconnected holiday stories and music combining humor, warmth, drama (and a few frights) celebrating how we relate, flourish, and even mourn together—both inside and out of the twine of the MANY holidays that connect one year to the next.

A true partnership production, Holiday Lites weaves the technological artistry and beauty of the newly renovated Benson Theatre with the immersive charm of the Brigit Saint Brigit Theatre Company to create a magical delight and truly eclectic evening of live theatre that invites the audience into the world of the play. Holiday Lites is unlike anything you’ll find this festive season!

THE STORIES

The Old Haunts, by MS Wulfgar

One ghost and three spirits struggle to find a new path on a well-worn journey with an old friend… and partner.

Bang the Bread, by Moira Mangiameli

(with contributions from Adam Bassing and Erienne Wredt)

Two next-door strangers connect on New Year’s Eve across a bridge of grief, spooky coincidences (or are they?), and old Irish traditions.

God Jule, Shalom, by MS Wulfgar

A Jewish man coming home from an office Christmas party on the Sabbath encounters a mysterious creature ripped from the pages of Pagan folklore.

Y2K, by Jason Levering

On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha… a single man on a dark road careens toward a truth he didn’t know he was looking for.

Old Sy Lange, by MS Wulfgar

Should all acquaintance be forgot… A tender look at the struggle to remember, the complicated weight of family, and the love of dementia and Alzheimer’s caretakers.
