BRUNSWICK — The Theater Project, 14 School St., has announced its upcoming holiday programming

“The Snowy Day and other Holiday Tales” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 16 and 17, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18.

“Wales and Tales” will be performed at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 21.

Both performances are a collection of seasonal short scenes, stories and music appropriate for the whole family. “Snowy Day” is performed by elementary/middle school actors, community members and a company of young dancers. Featured selections will include several scenes from Ezra Jack Keats’ “The Snowy Day,” and new retellings of “The 12 Days of Christmas” and “The Night Before Christmas.”

The centerpiece of “Wales and Tales” is Al Miller’s annual retelling of the Dylan Thomas’ short story “A Child’s Christmas in Wales.” This sensitive, funny and poetic piece has become an essential companion to the holidays for countless people, including many in midcoast Maine who return year after year to enjoy Miller’s version.

Proceeds from “Wales and Tales” will benefit the Midcaost Hunger Prevention Program. Food donations will also be collected.

Tickets are available online at theaterproject.com or by calling 207-729-8584.

Phyllis Fuchs and Al Miller will offer their annual holiday storytelling for families at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 24.

Fuchs is the former children’s librarian in Brunswick. Her and Miller have been telling holiday stories for more years than they can remember. The program is especially for small children, parents and grandparents. Admission is free, and attendees are encouraged to bring a donation for the Midcoast Hunger Prevention Program.
