The Daughter of Saint Nicholas
by Linda Daugherty

In this play within a play set in early 20th century Russia, a colorful troupe of actors in a small provincial theatre is presenting a dramatization of the Russian classic fairy tale about the daughter of St. Nicholas, who braves adversity and saves Christmas by finding the lost reindeer and completing St. Nick's rounds. Sergei, as warmhearted offstage as on, plays St. Nicholas, and Misha plays his sidekick. Irina plays the nervous usher who mush "go on" as the front half of the reindeer, with the introvert, Igor, playing the rear. Add to the mix Old Popo, the ancient curtain puller who may not hear the cues, three little girls/boys who appear as dancing snowflakes, and a half-starved street urchin with stage fright who fits the rabbit costume perfectly and discovers a home on the stage. Playing the star is Vayla, beautiful, temperamental and perhaps too old for the part. When Vayla, in an off-stage pique, trips over a chair and breaks her leg, she is replaced by the reluctant Ludi, the kind, shy, stage-struck dresses who will have to go on and save the show... if she can gather the nerve. Audiences will enjoy the drama, romance, holiday fun, and a peek at the backstage world of theatre.Directed by Tam Fancis
