In Our Home

Directed by Grant Gelvin & Steven Wade
Produced by Kelli Harless

Performance Dates: November 30 – December 16, 2012

It’s December 25, 1969. Just off Valley Center Grade the Rasmussen family, Darrel, June and their three daughters, share Christmas dinner with two soldiers: the formidable Enrique—preparing for his third tour, and Marcus—just out of basic training. Eldest daughter Ellen misses her new husband, Victor, serving in Viet Nam. Mother June is playing matchmaker, but her co-worker Roberta and Enrique have less in common than she’d hoped. News that Victor is injured and on his way home unleashes all their fears and dreams. This original musical, developed for Patio, contains more than a dozen new holiday songs crafted by local songwriters.
