Gallery Theater to stage family play for holidays in West Chicago
To brighten the season, “Mr. Beasley’s Christmas Party” will be performed in West Chicago.
David Beasley believes that one man’s kindness can be the answer to one child’s Christmas wish. In time for the holiday season, Gallery Theater presents the adaptation of an early 20th century Booth Tarkington story designed to entertain the entire family with quick changes, comic antics and surprising twists.
A journalist new to a Midwestern state capitol at the turn of the last century notices something funny going on at the charming house next door. Gubernatorial candidate David Beasley lives there with his young ward who has a menagerie of imaginary friends. Beasley’s nemesis Simeon Peck plans to ruin Beasley’s chances of election, but everyone learns something special at Beasley’s Christmas party.
Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. Sundays from Nov. 30 to Dec. 9. To purchase tickets or for additional information, contact Gallery Theater at (630) 234-5919 or email: GalleryTickets@aol.com.
The show will be presented in Gallery 200/STUDIO, 203 Turner Court, downtown West Chicago. Tickets cost $9, $8 for seniors and students.
