Now Playing - Three More Wishes For Christmas - A musical comedy by Patti J. Hynes McCarthy.  Every child has dreams and wishes, especially at Christmas time.  Well, almost every child.  Isabella Morky is the exception!  At the tender age of eight she is beyond "mature for her age."  She is highly skeptical and opinionated, with little room for fantasy in her life.  Desperate for her daughter not to grow up too fast, her mother gives her a very special gift that she had once received as a child on Christmas Eve, hoping it may hold similar magic for Isabella.  Three More Wishes For Christmas is an endearing musical comedy for the holidays, and a sequel to Three Wishes For Christmas, produced by The Seasons Dinner Theater in 1993.  Join the fun as our lovable Timm Holmly revives his rols as the Genie!  Located at Majestic Oaks Golf Club, 701 Bunker Lake Blvd. NE, Ham Lake.  Running now through December 31, 2016.  Order tickets online at www.majesticoaksgc.com or call 763-755-2140.

Best known for the film adaptation starring Peter O’Toole and Katharine Hepburn, this viciously funny drama is a high-stakes chess game where the pieces constantly change sides and no one is spared the sword.
