The Christmas Candles – A Holiday Radio Play

Recording LIVE:
7:00pm on Friday, December 15 at the 1890 House Museum
37 Tompkins St. Cortland NY

This holiday season, Homer Center for the Arts, the 1890 House Museum and X101 FM (Always Classic) present a poignant, powerful radio drama about Christmas magic touching the life of someone who desperately needs it.

As school lets out for the holidays in New York City, a student (Lucy) goes to the office of her trusted counselor (Ms. J), having been called there to discuss a serious matter. Afraid for Lucy’s welfare, and seeing that pressing the issue will only push Lucy away, Ms. J decides instead to share a story of her own: It is the story of Leah, a teen girl much like Lucy, who is out on the streets of her native NYC selling Christmas candles in order to survive. Her tale is filled with sadness, fear, hope, and perhaps a spark of divine intervention.

This moving holiday tale is sure to touch your heart. The radio play will be recorded during a one-time performance at 7pm on Friday, December 15 at the 1890 House Museum, and broadcast on Christmas Day (December 25) on 101.5 FM.
