Sponsored by Chesapeake Bank and Trust, The Garfield Center’s “(Stay) Home for the Holidays!” is a family-friendly, holiday-themed online video program. Produced by GCA Executive Director Steven Arnold, the program was scheduled to finish its online availability on December 20th. Due to popular demand, however, the online run has been extended until January 3rd.

The program features five new video-captured short plays by area playwrights, a reading of “A Visit from St. Nicholas” by area kids, and the hilarious return of memorable Garfield Center characters from past productions as they audition for the role of Santa.

Participating Playwrights include Worton’s Mark Sullivan, Elkton’s Michael Collins, Chestertown’s Steven Arnold and Rich Pauli of Annapolis. Segment Directors and Producers include Jennifer Kafka Smith, Nic Carter, Mark Sullivan, Paul Cambardella, Francoise Sullivan, and Steven Arnold, who also serves as the overall video Editor for the project.
