by Tom Jones & Harvey Schmidt

June 7-16, 1985
Directed by Shep Pamplin

A comic ritual based on an ancient battle between a young man and an old man set on New Year's Eve, CELEBRATION plays out this mythic struggle on a platform observed by Revelers who wait to see what the winter night will bring.

The revel propels a young Orphan looking for his lost garden of beautiful peace into a night filled with a host of bizarre characters, including the richest man in the world and a beautiful fallen Angel who is part of his entourage. Mr. Rich has not felt emotion for over twenty-five years, but with the Orphan's help, he once again achieves humanity, only to find himself in deadly competition with youth for the Angel's love.
