I went to see “A Christmas Story” this evening at the Tri-County Performing Arts Center in downtown Pottstown. I think I like the stage version better than the movie.
The “black box” theater demands that you focus on the acting rather than elaborate sets, props and special effects. I would say the actors were superb tonight.
Stand out performances were given by Geoffrey Berwind as Ralph as an adult (who acts as a narrator), Ben Williams as Ralphie Parker, Andrea Frassoni as Mother, Michele Bolay as Miss Shields and Steve Reazor as The Old Man. I would give the higest accolades to Groffrey Berwind and Steve Reazor. Michele Bolay was hysterical!
Congratulations to Marta Rubin Kiesling, Deborah Stimson-Snow and Director Bill Kiesling for another fine production!
My friends and I enjoyed a great meal at the Brick House prior to the show. The place was packed! Come to Pottstown and “make it a night”!
There are three more shows before “A Christmas Story” closes. On Saturday, December 17th there are performances at 3:00pm and 8:00pm. On Sunday, December 18th there is a performance at 3:00pm.
