Thursdays thru Sundays, Nov. 30 – Dec. 23, 2017 at Limelight Theatre, Inc.

The Limelight Theatre presents the classic holiday comedy, Coney Island Christmas, from Thursday, November 30, to Sunday, December 23, 2017. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and at 2:00 p.m. on Sundays throughout the show’s run.
Coney Island Christmas is all about the true spirit of Christmas, with two hilarious kid pageants layered into a timeless story with a heartwarming lesson about coexisting with other religions and ethnicities.
Based on a Grace Paley short story, the play was written by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies, and is the story of Shirley Abramowitz, a young Jewish girl who is cast as Jesus in the school’s Christmas pageant, as told by her in later years to her great-granddaughter.
The cast includes Daphne Moore as Clara, Evelyn Lynam as Shirley, Caragh Zeigler as Young Shirley, Alex Amarose as Mr. Abramowitz, Hazel Robinson as Mrs. Abramawitz, Joseph Stearman as Mr. Hilton, Adele Lawless as Miss Glace, Ashley Herbert as Evie, and many more in the ensemble.
