Welcome Yule 2023

Note from the Board:

What a show! We all had so much fun presenting this year’s Welcome Yule. Thank you Hattie and Talon for writing us such a great celebration. And we thank all of you who came out to see us at the Shea Theater Arts Center. It’s cliché, but without you, we would not be here. Our wonderful audiences were so enthusiastic and joyous; we truly felt that we were all part of our larger community. This year’s show may be over, but we are already hard at work preparing next year’s show. If you'd like to be a part of the show on the stage (or backstage!) next year, please send us a note using the contact link above. We'd love to have you (and your children) join us! Check back here for updates throughout the year and we’ll see you in December 2024. Wassai!

If you didn't get a chance to see the full production of Welcome Yule 2023, you can catch an abridged version at First Night 2023 at 2pm at First Churches of Northampton Sanctuary. Click here to learn more, and hopefully see you there!
