No, there's never enough holiday cheer. So, join in the Southampton Cultural Center's holiday programming with Joe Landry's It's a Wonderful Life - a Live Radio Play - or attend a new theatrical Center tradition. And yes, Center Stage will once again host its Third Annual Cookie Walk - so theatergoers can indulge in home-baked treats during and after the show.

"Building upon the tradition of presenting It's a Wonderful Life and the crowd-pleasing Cookie Walk, we have added Joe Landry's radio play, A Christmas Carol," explained Michael Disher, who will direct the productions. "This is our third year of holiday programming and it just seems perfect and right to kick off the holiday season with these two perennial favorites. And, oh those delicious cookies!"

Joe Landry's adaptations of Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol and George Bailey's It's a Wonderful Life will enchant audience members. These classics need no introduction, yet Landry's artful reworking of the tales is unexpected and not to be missed.

It's a Wonderful Life follows George Bailey who wishes he had never been born. When an angel travels to earth to make George's wish a realization, he discovers how many lives he has altered and impacted, and how they would change if his wish came true. Performances will take place on Friday, November 25th at 7 p.m. and Sunday, November 27th at 2 and 5 p.m.

A Christmas Carol revolves around the bitter Ebenezer Scrooge and his journey into a kinder man following visitations by the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. A Christmas Carol can be seen on Friday, December 2nd at 7 p.m., Saturday, December 3rd at 2 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday, December 4th at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.
