ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – First Avenue Playhouse will present Doc’s Holiday through Saturday, Dec. 22 at the 123 First Ave. theater.
The play is about Doc’s house being a special place – but then again, Doc is a special person too. He takes great joy from life and makes sure to share this zeal with all who cross his threshold as many nutty and needy people do.
Unfortunately, the only one who doesn’t understand this is Doc’s daughter, Charlotte. She chooses Christmas time, of course, to tell Doc she is moving away. This leaves Doc to decide whether to spend the yule season with her in a different city or stay at home to help a separated couple get back together.
In the spirit of those old-fashioned, heart-warming comedies of Frank Capra or George Kaufman, this delightful Christmas play in two acts shows how things can work out if we all just pull together.
The show will be presented at 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays from Nov. 30 to Dec. 22; 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16; and 8:30 p.m. Thursdays, Dec. 6 and 20.
Admission is $22; $18 for seniors on Thursday and Sunday. Dinner packages available.
Reservations are available by calling 732-291-7552. Additional information is available at www.firstavenueplayhouse.com.
