Witch Way North? Try Circle Theatre

There’s more than three Reasons and three McGuigans to see two openings this weekend. The Reasons all appear in the latest work of Omaha’s most prolific playwright, Doug Marr, whose Circle Theatre presents Witch Way to the North Pole.

Krista Reason plays Driselda, the main witch, and daughter Katya plays the young witch who wants to find Santa Claus. In this case, that’s “Corporate Santa” played by David...

After all, Mirror of the Invisible World, the Mary Zimmerman play directed by Cindy Melby Phaneuf, opens at the University of...

Tish, age 13 and 6-1, no Raggedy Ann

Here’s one of my favorite bits of Omaha Community Playhouse trivia and it involves that great native Omahan who died last week at age 86, Letitia “Tish” Baldridge. If you read Mike Kelly’s column, you know about her connection to Jackie Kennedy and her fame as an author and etiquette columnist.

More than a half century ago, she was 13 and one of many young girls who auditioned for the theater’s production of...
