In December 1986, thirteen-year-old Louis (Shane Geiger) has vowed to kiss the love of his life, Carolyn (Hanna Littler) – “…the hottest girl in the eighth grade gifted and talented class” before Christmas. In his way? The forces of puberty, his intolerant older sister (Courtney Brittingham), control-freak mother (Andrea Strom), eternally amused father (Todd Crego), and the unexpected appearance of his grandmothers – Grandma Jacobs (Tom Bennett) and Grandma Skolowski (Morgan Sauls). It’s going to be the worst week of his life. And the best.
Told through the eyes of present-day Louis (Adam Dykes), “Tiny Miracle” is a humorous look at family life in the eighties, filled with laughs and nostalgia, as well as poignant moments and some tears. It also contains some PG-13 content, so parental discretion is advised.
Come see “A Tiny Miracle with a Fiberoptic Unicorn” at the VCC Fine Arts Theater. Shows are November 29th and 30th, and December 4th, 7th, and 8th at 7 pm, with a 2 pm matinee December 2nd.
