Long ago, near a little town in Calabria, Italy lived an old witch called Strega Nona “Grandma Witch.” She knew magic and loved to use it to help people. Big Anthony, Strega Nona’s helper, didn’t like to work, never paid attention and almost always got into trouble. Every Christmas Eve, Strega Nona made a big feast for all the people of Calabria with no magic at all because she says, “No magic at Christmastime. Christmas has a magic all its own.” After Big Anthony nearly ruined Christmas by another one of his goofs, it seemed like nothing but a miracle could save Strega Nona’s feast.
But Christmas is a time for miracles…and wonderful surprises too.

"This delightful work of Tomie dePaola is joyful celebration of Christmas magic. Community - the village - all the different ways we are family to one another are a grounding force in the play. And, oh, how much fun we have singing, dancing and celebrating together"
