Indian Valley Theatre to present ‘The Rented Christmas’ Dec. 9-11

SANDWICH – Indian Valley Theatre will open its holiday show, “The Rented Christmas,” on Dec. 9.

“The Rented Christmas,” written by Norman C. Ahern Jr. and Yvonne Ahern, tells the story of John Dale (Jacob Roller), who decides three days before Christmas that he can buy what he lacks – a family for the holidays – and it’s up to Anne Weston (Kari Frantzen) to figure out how to fulfill her contract to rent it to him. Her first plan fails, so she reverts to contacting the local orphanage, and the results are sure to warm your heart.

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, and Saturday, Dec. 10, at the Sandwich Opera House, 140 E. Railroad St. in Sandwich. There also will be a matinee performance at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11.

Tickets for “The Rented Christmas” cost $15 and can be purchased in advance at or at the door for $18 if available.
