ADA – Act 11’s production of “A North-Star Christmas,” written and directed by Vickie Reifsnider, is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 12, through Saturday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m., with a 2 p.m. Matinee Sunday, Dec. 16, at the Dorothy Summers Theatre at East Central University in Ada.

Sixteen orphans, played by Dalton Dial, Colton Pennington, Steven Davidson, Carter Pennington, Jet Armstrong, Makenzi Lamb, Cali Stenson, Kory Cowger, Honey Bushnell, Rosie Jenkins, Fisher Fulton, Hannah Fortner, Julie Krause, Katie Cowger, Macy Davis and Dana Rogers, teach eight spoiled rich kids the true meaning of Christmas.

Brock Mann plays “Jake,” who has been sentenced to do community service with his drag racing friends, played by Kire’ Stenson, Christine Elliott, Meagan Wright, Kelsey Dial, Natalie Hale, Dylan Cunningham and Nathan Wright.

The story unfolds when all the children find themselves stranded in the snow and beg Ms. Smithe, played by Vicki Cowger, for refuge until they can be rescued. She allows them to stay – on the condition that Allison Helm, played by Kire’ Stenson – can be nice to everyone.

The comic reliefs, played by Chris and Nick Geisler, are dressed like Santa and an elf. They are under the impression that the once-abandoned lodge is now haunted, and they are persuaded to help Allison Helm spread a little extra holiday cheer.

The play has strong religious content and provides an opportunity for church groups to subject their youth to a live theatrical production.

Tickets for children age 5 and under are $4. Students and seniors are $6, and Adults are $8.
