White Pine High School ended its run of “The Forgotten Carols” in front of a sold out crowd Monday night.
“We put as many people in the theater as we could,” said Kathy Tucker, director of The Forgotten Carols.
Put on by the White Pine High School Players and their adult counterpart, Seat of our Pants Productions, “The Forgotten Carols” attracted over 450 people during its five day run.
Tucker called the production a “Christmas gift to the community,” with over 56 people both from the public and high school getting involved.
“I tend to shy away from doing Christmas shows,” Tucker said. “Once I thought of this play, I couldn’t let it go.”
The story involves the grumpy Nurse Chamberlain, as she has to watch over a mysterious man named John Christian. Upset that she has to miss work to “babysit,” she slowly discovers that there might be more to life than work, and that there might be something more to Christmas than she knew.
Tucker said the tender story of the true meaning of Christmas resonated with many that attended the play.
“We had many people approach us after the show and express how much they enjoyed the music and the actors portrayal of the story,” Tucker said.
The White Pine Players next production “Charlie’s Aunt” will be held in Spring. According to Tucker, it will be “a delightful Edwardian comedy performed in the round.”
