It’s that time if year again! Hanukkah is on its way. Whether you have never before seen a latke, or you whittle your own dreidel each year, Unexpected Stage’s winter fundraiser has something for everyone.

Join us for a boisterous reading of Unexpected Stage co-founder Christopher Goodrich’s story of a misguided creature who tries to ruin this year’s festival of lights–and reminds us of the deeper meaning of the holiday season in the process.

Throw in haunting holiday melodies, wine, and goodies to nosh on, for an evening to remember!

The cast will feature Richard Goemann telling the Grunch’s tale, and Deborah Sternberg filling the room with song.
