Five Candles

Grandma and her Candles

Book by John O'Hara

Words & Music by Cathy Block

Five Candles takes you on a musical journey to Grandma's house that proves to be inspiring and wondrous.

Grandma, who is part eccentric and part magical, entertains her 5 grandchildren for Christmas, and reminds all of them what love, and the spirit of the holiday can do, all while helping her oldest grandson find the light in his heart again.

Grandma's house is a place where books come to life, and anything is possible.

With the book by John O'Hara (Barrymore nominee) and score by Cathy Block (winner of the Editor's Choice award from the American Library Association's Booklist), Five Candles is as warm as a cup of hot cocoa, cozy as a fireplace, and rings with the joy of the season!

After Completing a succesful run of Five Candles here's what Director Rachel Daly had to say:

"Directing 'Five Candles' was a great experience for me as a first-time director. I got to work with both children and adults on a show with an incredible amount of range--the whole company loved discovering the sentimental and funny moments in the book, music and lyrics. It was rewarding to see how much the cast, crew, and audience enjoyed the experience. I would recommend this holiday one act to any theatre group."
