JIB Productions, a nonprofit performing arts producer, will hold "Seasons Readings" of one-act plays and short stories with holiday themes on Thursday, Dec. 13.
It will be held from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Westport Woman's Club, 44 Imperial Ave., followed by a reception with cast members, dessert and eggnog.
Readings will include "Verna," a story by Paul Gallico about a kindhearted, talented USO girl and member of a performing troupe in World War II Belgium who wins the hearts of American soldiers. Carolyn Marble of Ridgefield will play the title role, according to a release.
Marble also will join Tom Zingarelli of New Haven in "Santa comes to the King David," a George Cameron Grant comedy where a woman saves someone she thinks is a bridge leaper in a Santa suit and a Kris Kringle makes annual visits to a Jewish nursing home.
Tickets are $30 per person.
