John McGivern's "Holiday Tales"

By John McGivern

Directed by John McGivern

John McGivern, former host of Wisconsin’s PBS program, “Around the Corner,” story-teller and actor, will present his popular “Holiday Tales.” McGivern is best known for his Emmy-award winning work on PBS. His holiday shows serve up a steady stream of stories from his Eastside of Milwaukee childhood. They recall an age of innocence bounded by Thanksgiving Dinner Traditions, Santa’s handcrafted Christmas toys, Midnight Mass Expectations and New Year’s Eve adult only parties in the Bartlett Avenue finished basement. “Holiday Tales” recounts holidays past and present and is guaranteed to generate loads of laughs and a warm, holiday glow.
