“One Christmas was so much like another that I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve, or whether it snowed for twelve days and twelve nights when I was six… ” excerpt from A Child’s Christmas in Wales I’ve been acting since I was 2 years old and now I had an opportunity to share a great play with people. The play was called A Child’s Christmas In Wales through the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. It was a real honor to be involved because this was the first holiday production C.S.F. had done. In this play, young Dylan Thomas (played by me) reaches into his memory and pulls out memories of his past Christmases. This play is an hour and fifteen minutes long and very touching with many funny parts. It consists of 6 actors. The four adults were Timothy Orr, Gary Wright, Karyn Casl, and Rebecca Remaly. Then the two kids are Victoria Capraro and me, Orion Pilger. It has something for everyone and appeals to many audiences with its’ singing, dancing, and imagination. We also tossed out candy in the audience in the first Act. One of my favorite things was when we did shows just for school groups since we got to do talk backs to the audience! Philip Sneed the artistic director for the Colorado Shakespeare Festival said that he plans to do this play again next year and keep having Christmas Shows thereafter. My experience in this play was GREAT and I sure hope I get to do it again next year! Oh!! I was also given the chance to do Macbeth this summer! Maybe you can come up to Boulder and see me as Macduff’s son. I sure hope to see you there!!
