My Three Angels
One Weekend: Friday 7:30pm; Saturday 2pm & 7:30pm at Community Yellow Box Theatre
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 are on sale now, but why not consider season tickets for all 3 shows this summer.
GREAT NEWS! After a long hunt (learn more here) we've found a great home for this summer. Community Yellow Box Theatre in the Community Christian Church complex at Ogden and Rickert in Naperville.
Unified auditions for My Three Angels and our other two shows will occur in March. Auditions specific to this show are later. 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!
