Named for the twelfth night after Christmas, the end of the Christmas season, Twelfth Night plays with love and power. The Countess Olivia, a woman with her own household, attracts Duke (or Count) Orsino. Onto this scene arrive the twins Viola and Sebastian; caught in a shipwreck, each thinks the other has drowned. Viola disguises herself as a male page and enters Orsino’s service. Orsino sends her as his envoy to Olivia—only to have Olivia fall in love with the messenger.

Last Christmas Teatro Aurora’s Club Babalú brought the spirt the Puerto Rican tradition of Parranda to the concert stage. The result was holiday magic. Sometimes compared to carolers, the Parranda is more raucous and festive. Traditionally the trulla, or group of revelers, will sneak up to a house usually very late or in the middle of the night and surprise the unsuspecting family with holiday singing. The result is an impromptu late night Christmas party with lots of music and joy. This December, Frankie and the ATL Salsa All-Stars won’t be sneaking to your house, but they are bringing authentic island holiday vibes to the LAC!

A Christmas Carol

(Original Charles Dickens version)

December 1 – 17

Thursday, Friday & Saturday at 7:30 PM
Sunday at 2:30 PM


“This Christmas you will be visited by three spirits…again”. 


A Christmas Carol returns to the playhouse.  School Street Playhouse proudly presents in conjunction with the Sherouse/Riley team, the original producers of the spectacular Christmas play, the classic tale of ‘A Christmas Carol’.


The plot is centered on Ebenezer Scrooge, a penny-pinching miser in the first degree. He cares nothing for the people around him and mankind exists only for the money that can be made through exploitation and intimidation. He particularly detests Christmas which he views as ‘a time for finding yourself a year older, and not an hour richer’. Scrooge is visited, on Christmas Eve, by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley who died seven Christmas Eves ago.  He tells Scrooge that he will be haunted by three spirits, the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future, who must succeed in showing Scrooge the error of his ways. This classic tale is filled with music, dance and characters that will warm your heart, cheer your spirits and remind us that it is never too late for redemption and combines superb special effects for an evening of entertainment unlike any experienced before. This play was written by and adapted for the stage by G. Scott Riley and Lisa Sherouse Riley, based on the classic novel by Charles Dickens.

The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun!

1114 Lionheart 2.jpg

This play takes place in Atlanta, Georgia, in December of 1939. Gone with the Wind is having its world premiere, and Hitler is invading Poland, but Atlanta’s elitist German Jews are much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, the social event of the season. Especially concerned is the Freitag family: bachelor Adolph; his widowed sister, Beulah (Boo) Levy; and their also widowed sister-in-law, Reba. Boo is determined to have her dreamy, unpopular daughter, Lala, attend Ballyhoo, believing it will be Lala’s last chance to find a socially acceptable husband. The family gets pulled apart and then mended together with plenty of comedy, romance, and revelations along the way.

An intimate and touching show, featuring music by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof) and book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret), She Loves Me was nominated for five Tony Awards in 1964. The 1993 Broadway revival won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical and the 1994 Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, while the 2016 Broadway Revival snagged the Tony Award for Best Scenic Design (beating Hamilton!). Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, She Loves Me is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old-world elegance. The Mikos Lazlos play Parfuemerie, on which it is based, has inspired many adaptations, including the beloved film You've Got Mail starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.

Preview Performances: November 24th, 25th & 30th at 8 PM

In this Dad's Garage show, the cast rehearses a (relatively) faithful performance of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol. However, every night, the show is "invaded" by a character, a surprise to the cast and audience alike. (Past invaders have included Ursula the Sea Witch, Ted Lasso and THANOS?!) The cast must do their best to continue telling the classic story, all while incorporating a chaotic guest.

Black Nativity is an African-American telling of the Nativity story, based on the song-play written by acclaimed African-American poet and playwright, Langston Hughes. The show opens in a modern day African-American church on Christmas Day, filled with testifying deacons, sanctified ladies, and down-home preaching, and ultimately recreates the journey of Mary and Joseph, resplendent in African costumes, to Bethlehem, accompanied by a rousing repertoire of old-fashioned spirituals. The African-American viewpoint and the gospel music make Black Nativity a truly unique and entertaining theatrical experience.
