Island Stage Left shares this invitation with you…
Island Stage Left’s Holiday Production “Omnium Gatherum” Starts this Friday, and reservations are already filling up for Christmas Eve.
Helen & Dan, choral director & pianist Carol Hooper and actor/musicians/singers Mark Mazzarella, Beatrice Grauman and Scott Mapstead are bringing the holiday spirit’s good cheer to Friday Harbor this year!
Join us in our warm, cozy venue for a celebration of the season in what has become known as an island tradition!
“Omnium Gatherum” (“a gathering of all”) is playing every night for just one full week (minus Monday the 19th) from Dec 16th through Christmas Eve at SJC Fairgrounds in the Marie Boe building — Come and celebrate the spirit of the season with us, through storytelling, theatre and song.
This year we hope, once again, to nurture “hygge” — the traditional Danish concept of “coziness of the soul” and the reason that Danes have been rated, for many years, the world’s happiest people. It incorporates the gathering of friends, candlelight, home-spun music, warm drinks, telling stories by the fire and letting go of life’s worries. We love to share this warm and embracing evening with our community each year. It has become one of our most popular traditions. Come alone, with friends and/or family prepared to laugh, to reminisce and to celebrate!
