Kaaterskill Actors Theater present "The Long Christmas Dinner" and "Pullman Car Hiawatha" by Thornton Wilder.

We all know Thornton Wilder as the author of “Our Town,” the classic that is practically a part of our national DNA.  That play is so popular that, 75 years after its first production, it is performed somewhere in the world every single night.  Kaaterskill Actors Theater takes great pleasure in presenting two lesser-known short plays by this most American of playwrights and three-time Pulitzer Prize winner.

“The Long Christmas Dinner” carries the Bayard family through 90 years of Yuletide celebrations, as we see generations born, grow up, prosper, age and die, all in the space of a single meal.  “Pullman Car Hiawatha” transports its comical sleeping car passengers to Chicago by way of Ohio, time, space and the Cosmos, as we see them (and ourselves) as part of a great celestial celebration.   Joining in the performance of “Pullman Car Hiawatha” are the dancers of Petite Productions Dance Academy in Catskill.
