Event Description

Join us for a nostalgic trip back to 1986 to a time of video stores and No CELL PHONES!  A bright, warm comedy about dreams, life, and love, that had critics and audiences cheering at its premiere. Danny Fleming had convinced himself that life’s dreams can’t be anything more than dreams. Then back into his life walks his eighth-grade crush, Meredith O’Connor – only now it’s Sister Meredith Louise, and it becomes a New Year’s Eve to remember.

"Considerable charm, zest, imagination, and expertise" - Variety
"A lovely riff of magic." - The Boston Globe
"A crisp and neatly starched little heart-warmer." - Newsday
