review A CHILD'S CHRISTMAS IN WALES Grand Canyon University

For more information on A Child's Christmas in Wales at Grand Canyon University Click here.

"Nostalgic, childhood remembrances of a simpler time are at the core of Dylan Thomas'A Child's Christmas in Wales. Thomas' magical story from 1952 of one perfect Christmas was adapted for the stage over thirty years ago and Grand Canyon University has produced a beautiful early holiday present for us all with their superb production of the play.  Ryan Usher exudes youthful innocence as Dylan. Usher achieves the right sense of childlike exuberance but balances it with an appropriate fond remembrance as the older Dylan for the narration segments. It is an exquisite performance.
There isn't a weak link in the cast. Full of prose, rhymes, songs and carols, GCU's A Child's Christmas in Wales is a magical Christmas family dinner of love and charm. With a perfect cast, rich creative designs, and sure-footed direction it is a family get together that you won't want to miss and won't want to end." - Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway
