Door Shakespeare’s Producing Artistic Director, Michael Stebbins, and Managing Director, Amy Ensign, are pleased to announce an evening of holiday entertainment on Monday, December 16.
Let the merrymaking begin as Door Shakespeare’s Producing Artistic Director, Michael Stebbins, reads selected essays from Holidays on Ice, by beloved humorist David Sedaris. Both thoughtful and playful, Sedaris’s stories are the perfect antidote to the craziness holidays can bring out in all of us.
Not ready for the fun to end? We invite you to stay on for a special reception. Mix and mingle with friends in the rustic ambience of Björklunden’s Great Hall (7590 Boynton Lane, Baileys Harbor, WI 54202) as we celebrate the season and look ahead to 2020. Enjoy live music, a bountiful dessert buffet, coffee, tea, cocoa, a selection of dessert wines, and more!
“This season just isn’t complete without a little David Sedaris,” shares Michael Stebbins. “The first time I heard him reading ‘The Santaland Diaries’ on NPR in 1992, I was hooked. As an actor, my job is to stay out of Sedaris’ way, and let his wonderful writing cast the spell. His imagery is so vivid, his voice so identifiable, I think of myself as more of a conduit, which is a welcome challenge. I hope that excitement, that admiration, comes through in the delivery. I must love his work, for I have been producing and sharing his work at holiday-time for over ten years. But, there are so many who are familiar with and love his work – whether it is because of NPR, or his essays in ‘The New Yorker,’ or his many books – I am certainly not alone.”
Holidays on Ice begins at 7:00 and is free an open to the public. Tickets to the reception immediately following are $50 and may be purchased online (doorshakespeare.com) or by calling 920.839.1500.
