Lantern Theater Company, located in St. Stephen’s Church, 10th and Lombard Streets, is presenting a World Premiere Adaptation of Dylan Thomas’ A Child’s Christmas in Wales, through January 5.

 This piece was  co-created by Artistic Director Charles McMahon and interdisciplinary artist  and director Sebastienne Mundheim.  As fascinating as it is to hear the vivid language of Dylan Thomas’s poem and the nostalgic moments of Christmases past it might invoke, it is equally intriguing to discover just how this presentation was put together. Click on the insert for a short video that gives a preview of the delight that will be in store for you when you go to see A Child’s Christmas in Wales.   Performed seamlessly  by an all-star ensemble cast of Charlie DelMarcelle, Genevieve Perrier, Doug Hara and Amy Smith, the captivating language of Dylan’s poem is brought to life on the stage with the help of Sebastienne Mundheim’s creations and the audience’s fond memories of Christmas from childhood days.  The language of the work and the artistry on the stage are enough to induce appreciation of the work even if a flood of memories are not evoked. Include this delight for your eyes and ears when making plans for holiday viewing.  For more information or tickets, call 215-829-0395 or visit online at
