Canton Theatre

"The Fantasticks" is coming to Canton Theatre from Feb. 7-16 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Cherokee Theatre Company will present a heartwarming holiday comedy in December.

In “Greetings!” by Tom Dudzick, Andy has a sweet Catholic mother, a sour Catholic father and an intellectually disabled younger brother named Mickey. When he brings his Jewish atheist fiancé to meet the folks on Christmas Eve, his worst fears about family blow-ups are realized. But when Mickey, whose entire vocabulary has been limited to “oh boy” and “wow,” suddenly spouts the word “Greetings!” the entire family’s belief system is turned upside down. For it seems an ancient, wise and witty spirit who is set upon healing the family’s wounds has borrowed Mickey’s body.

Performances will be at the Canton Theatre, 171 East Main St. in Canton.

The showings for the play are:

Friday, Dec. 6 and 13 at 8 p.m.

Saturday, Dec. 7 and 14 at 8 p.m.

Sunday, Dec. 8 and 15 at 2:30 p.m.

Prices are for $20 for adults and $18 for seniors (ages 60 and up,) students and military. Credit cards will be accepted.
