About this show

After a critically acclaimed world-premiere production last season, this beautiful, moving holiday treat is back by popular demand. When a broken-hearted boy loses the treasured wooden nativity given to him by his now deceased father, his mother goes to the local woodcarver in hopes of obtaining a replacement. Jonathan Toomey, known to the village as "Mr. Gloomy" takes the job - but refuses to promise anything by Christmas. But when Thomas decides to watch the woodcarver work, the commission takes their relationship to unexpected places; even as Christmas approaches, the real miracle is the transformation created in each of their lives. Based on the award-winning children's book by Susan Wojchiechowski Starring Provision Theater Company member Susan Moniz Written by Timothy Gregory and Michael Mahler Directed by Timothy Gregory
