Wales & Tales is returning to The Theater Project for its annual holiday visit at 2 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 22. Al Miller and his merry band of holiday celebrants will offer an entertaining potpourri of stories and even a song or two.

With a reverent nod to the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, Miller will relive Thomas’ lyrical holiday memory “A Child’s Christmas in Wales.” This sensitive, funny and poetic piece has become an essential companion to the holidays for thousands of people, including many in Mid-coast Maine who return year after year to enjoy Miller’s version.

In addition to “A Child’s Christmas in Wales,” Miller will bring back a Southern version of a traditional Christmas favorite — IF he survives his also popular retelling of “The Mitten,” a winter tale in which a lost mittenbecomesaB&Bfora gaggle of shivering animals, large and small.

This year, Miller will be joined by dancers from Joanna Patterson’s teen class at Brunswick School of Dance, who will perform a contemporary modern dance number just right for the holiday season.

Wales & Tales is onstage at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 22 Tickets are available online at, or by calling the box office at 729- 8584. The Theater Project is located at 14 School St., Brunswick.

Also at The Theater Project: At 11 a.m Tuesday, Dec. 24, Phyllis Fuchs and Miller will offer their annual holiday storytelling for families.

Fuchs is the former children’s librarian in Brunswick; she and Miller have been telling holiday stories for more years than they choose to remember. The program is appropriate for small children, parents and grandparents. Admission is free; audience members are encouraged to donate to Midcoast Hunger Prevention Program.
