Northeast Theatre to present “Kringle’s Window”

Featured — By on November 25, 2005 at 11:12 am

The Northeast Theatre (TNT) will present Kringle’s Window, a holiday comedy for the whole family by Tony Award winner Mark Medoff, on Dec. 2-18, with discounted previews on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at TNT’s Performance Space at the Jermyn, corner of Wyoming at 326 Spruce, downtown Scranton.

Medoff has written a play that opens the gift of the winter holidays to all faiths and traditions through the magical person of Mrs. Rosen, who, as it turns out, has connections to more magic than you can shake a wand at. Through the intervention of this eccentric and eclectic spirit, what has been a family suffering from severe dysfunction rediscovers common ground, and reconnects with all the good that the holidays truly have to offer.

The play was written not so much for children, as to be acted by children, and featuring roles for seven young actors in addition to the five adult roles. The adult cast includes New York actors Kurt Kingsley and Ellen Seltz, Pittsburgh-area actress Barbara Blackledge and, in the role of Kringle, Towanda actor Joe Newbury, who will be familiar to TNT audiences from Over the River and Through the Woods and Lettice and Lovage, among others.

Previews Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. Opening reception Friday, Dec. 2, at 8 p.m. with reception afterwards. After opening, performances are scheduled for Thursday at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., Sunday at 3 p.m.

Admission is: general, $20; seniors, $15; students, $5; and $10 for previews (students half price). Tickets may be purchased at the box office Wednesday through Saturday 3 p.m. until curtain, by phone at 570-558-1515, or online at www.thenortheasttheatre.us.
