‘A Little Christmas Spirit’

-A A +A

 Suwanee Valley Players  announces its annual Christmas show to be held on the second and third weekends of December. This year’s production, "A Little Christmas Spirit," written by Pat Cook, is produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Company. Like other Pat Cook plays, "A Little Christmas Spirit" is full of humor and intrigue. J. D. Morse, played by Andy Kidd, has been looking high and low for a special Christmas gift for his grandson. Finally, as a last resort he takes the advice of a flier on his car windshield and wanders into Nick’s Emporium, an old-fashioned store chock-full of all sorts of gifts and knickknacks. He has a hard time explaining to Nick, played by veteran actor Perry Davidson, what he’s looking for and finds himself falling under the old storekeeper’s spell. Just when Morse is about to buy something, he runs outside to chase some kids away from his car. When he returns, he finds the store suddenly dark and quiet. A policeman  then shows up to run him off because, “This place ain’t been open in 40 years!” Morse finds a way back, not only to the store, but to a time 40 years ago when he was a younger man. This Yuletide fantasy is full of humor and the holiday spirit and makes us all wish we could find a “Nick’s Emporium” where life stands still and we can all truly enjoy a little Christmas spirit. 

The show will run Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at the Chief Theatre, 25 East Park Avenue, Chiefland, from Dec. 9 - 18. Tickets are $8 for students/seniors/military with ID and $10 for general admission; youth 12 and under $5.
