“A Christmas Story” At Tri-County Performing Arts Center, Pottstown

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.
