SOUTHERN CA PREMIERE

“A Christmas Memory” is a lovely, small-scale musical about childhood, friendship, the holidays and the lessons of life itself. Helmed by veteran director Nick DeGruccio, Laguna’s production is a wonderfully warm – even sentimental – memory of Christmases past, and a genuine theatrical treat for the holidays. - Orange County Register

...the audible sniffles at the reviewed performance indicate a heartwarming seasonal staple in the making. - LA Times

Director DeGruccio does and excellent job of directing his talented crew. ...this is a lovely rendition of the story. - StageHappenings.com

Fortunately, with master director Nick DeGruccio working his theatrical magic at the Laguna Playhouse, musical director Darryl Archibald and the production’s live three-piece orchestra* doing full justice to Grossman’s hummable melodies, and a cast of some of Southern California’s best musical theater performers doing  all-around splendid work, A Christmas Memory is well worth seeing.

...you will likely rate A Christmas Memory quite memorable indeed.  Bring Kleenex. You’ll need them. - StageScene LA
