Steel River Playhouse

Beware of frozen flagpoles, and other rogue pitfalls of childhood, as you take a stroll down memory lane with Ralphie Parker. This Christmas classic will come to life this holiday season. Make sure you’re not on the “Naughty List” so you can join in on all the fun! AND all the chaos.


December 14
Ardmore Music Hall

Tim Reynolds has been playing music all of his life. Starting as a bass player in a gospel band in his hometown of St. Louis to his break through band in the 80’s, TR3 and forward to recording with & touring with DMB and the Dave Matthews/Tim Reynolds Acoustic Duo. Tim’s progression has continued through his last 8 years on the road as a solo acoustic guitar wizard playing for packed houses who have come to realize this is not just Dave's side man, this is one of the most talented and thoughtful players on the circuit today!!

Now things have come full circle and TR3 is back again in 2008 to rock and funk your house down. The songs will be a mix of updated Tim classics to wild covers of everything from James Brown, Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin & Prince to Tim’s newer catalogue of material.

Fairytales collide in our brand new holiday panto — Robin Hood is dead, his merry men are in hiding, and Nottinghamshire is taken over by a greedy villainess. (Gasp!) Can a new hero, or heroine, emerge from Sherwood Forest and save the day? Set in the 1940s with a dash of the medieval, this hilarious, musical mashup is our most inventive panto yet.

Back to the DCP Stage by popular demand! This heart-warming holiday classic follows George Bailey, who hopes to travel from his hometown, Bedford Falls, and lasso the moon for the lovely Mary Hatch. When George’s plans continue to fail and life’s hardships seem worse than ever, an angel named Clarence comes down to earth to show him that he really does have a “wonderful life”.  Enjoy this story along with your favorite holiday songs and 1940’s commercials.
