A GF&CO Holiday Tradition

Dixon Place Presents The FREE Staged Reading of

A Child's XMAS in Walez

Kick start your holiday season with our charming, fun-filled adaptation of this Dylan Thomas classic.

Adapted & abridged by GF&CO.

Doors open at 6:30-7:30 for drinks, holiday treats, and a special GF&CO holiday punch!**

FREE Reading 7:30 - 8:30

CAST- GF&CO Member Actors: Athos Cakiades, Sharahn LaRue*, Kerry Milliron, Stephanie Regina*, and Special Guest, Christopher Tocco*

GF&CO’s adaptation of Dylan Thomas’ beloved classic poem grew out of our yearly holiday tradition of reading the poem aloud every December. Over time it grew into this staged reading, with one actor reading the role of the mature Thomas as he looks back upon his childhood memories, and four other actors reading a multitude of secondary characters that create a wide variety of memorable personalities. The result is a delightfully sweet confection for the season. We hope this reading becomes a seasonal favorite for others as it has for us, offering audiences a free indulgence in the spirit of the season!

All are welcome!

What is an Open Studio?

GF&CO’s Open Studios are free INVITATION ONLY open rehearsals where we share the experimentation of our projects while still in development​ by putting our performance technique,One-Thought-One-Action (OTOA)™ into action. The JUNE 24 Open Studio will be the culmination of our 3-week residency, or, what we call, MONKEY TIME.

GF&CO Open Studios offer an opportunity to engage our invited guests in the early stages of our project development, and to share the benefits of process-driven projects (vs. product-driven productions) as they are grown incrementally.

GF&CO Open Studios are an opportunity to introduce potential producing partners, potential new patrons, and/or ambassadors to our work, our projects, and our company.

We conclude the Open Studio with light refreshments and an open dialogue.

What is Monkey Time?

Monkey Time refers to our workshop development residencies: a process dedicated to the exploration and experimentation of a new project while on our feet, as well as to the application of the One-Thought-One-Action (OTOA) ™ performance technique.

Monkey Time differs from traditional play development -- which focuses primarily on the development of a script and is generally conducted through a series of play-readings.

Monkey Time is time to "monkey around " and test new ideas long before we head into production
