(West Plains) – The Imaginary Theatre Company (ITC) of St. Louis will bring its production of “A Gnome for Christmas” to the West Plains Civic Center for a performance November 30 at 7 PM.
General admission tickets are $5 each and available at the civic center box office weekdays between 10 AM and 3 PM. Children age 13 and under will be admitted free. Partial funding for this production, sponsored by Missouri State University-West Plains’ University/Community Programs (U/CP) Department, is being provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
“A Gnome for Christmas,” written by Sarah Brandt with music and lyrics by Stephen James Neale, tells the story of Lulu and her quirky father who tries to make a living selling his odd inventions. When he fails to sell yet another of his creations, the pair must pack their bags and move to more meager accommodations. Lulu’s about ready to give up, but when mysterious and magical things start happening, it seems that this farm might be home to more than meets the eye.
ITC is the resident professional touring ensemble of The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, the St. Louis region’s leading professional theater.
