This production was scheduled November 17-December 3, 2023.

Thanksgiving dinner at the home of Maggie Anderson and Jerry Collins is supposed to be simple this year. Maggie is expecting her son and his pie-loving boyfriend for the holiday. What she’s not expecting is a surprise visit from her daughter and her new husband, both vegan and of a different political persuasion. Added to the mix are Jerry’s daughter and her husband who are going through a crisis of their own. Maggie attempts to walk a hilarious tightrope to keep the holiday peaceful, setting the table for laughter and tears.

That’s the set-up for A Rainbow Holiday, a play written by Lori Sigrist and Joe Simonelli and offered up for your holiday cheer at By the Sea Productions, 545 Shasta Ave. in Morro Bay November 17 through December 3.

Samvel Gottlieb directs a cast featuring Rosemarie Lagunas, Russell Snow, Jeremy Engel, Molly Pendley, Elizabeth Renee Bolyard, Tim Linzey, Ryanne Howard, and Randal Sumabat.
