Truman Capote wrote two endearing stories of the holiday season, The Thanksgiving Visitor and A Christmas Memory, which Vandenbroucke adapted into Holiday Memories, a compelling tale of friendship, love and fruitcakes set in southern Alabama during the early 1930s. Buddy may be the lone child in a house of elderly adults during tough times, but having a child-like and loving aunt as his best friend opens his eyes to holiday fun and simple lessons of the heart. Holiday Memories is funny and heartwarming entertainment for the whole family.
Atlantic Stage, the Myrtle Beach area’s only professional theatre, was organized by Coastal Carolina University theatre faculty and utilizes CCU’s stage facilities at its 79th Avenue location. Tickets available at www.atlanticstage.com.
