My Three Angels
One Weekend: June 28-30, 2019; Location TBD
Written by Samuel Spewack and Bella Spewack
Based on La Cuisine Des Anges by Albert Husson
Felix, a kind-hearted but not business-minded shopkeeper living on the coast of French Guiana, is struggling to collect on the many lines of credit he has graciously handed out, without much success and much to his wife Emilie’s frustration. To make matters worse, Felix’s scheming cousin Henri arrives with the intention of cheating Felix out of the business. Henri brings his nephew Paul, who jilted Felix’s daughter Marie-Louise in favor of an heiress. The family appears to be swimming in misfortune, but a Christmas miracle occurs. Three convicts—Jules, a swindler; and Joseph and Alfred, both murderers—overhear Felix’s woes from their spot on the roof, which they have been repairing as part of a work-release program. They get to work solving the family’s problems one by one, even cooking Christmas dinner, quickly becoming a trio of guardian angels.
The 1955 movie version of this story, We’re No Angels, stars Humphrey Bogart, Aldo Ray, and Peter Ustinov. There's also an Australian TV adaptation, and it's easy to see why it's such a popular tale: Lifetime's got nothing on this heartwarming Christmas story! Tickets go on sale February 1, but you can fill your loved ones with Christmas cheer by stuffing season tickets in their stockings! See all 3 shows this summer.
Our home for over 20 years, the Naperville Central High School Auditorium ("when the kids move out, we move in!"), will be under construction this summer, installing a brand new lighting system. It'll be great for the kids when they get back in the fall, but it's putting us out of a home this summer. The decision was recently made to perform the work, so we're busy right now looking for new quarters. (See our news article for more details)
No worries; we'll put on a show if we have to go back to performing in a tent, like we did for years when we first started. As soon as we know, we'll post it here, and notify all our ticket holders as well via email.
Unified auditions for My Three Angels and our other two shows will occur in April. Please keep an eye on our Auditions page, “like” us on Facebook, and sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date on important season announcements!
