JEFFERSON CITY – Legacy Theatre has announced its upcoming production of “A Candle in the Window” by L. Don Swartz will open Friday, November 10.
Stranded in a train station on Christmas Eve, seven weary travelers find that not only has their journey been interrupted – but the course of their lives as well. In the words of the stationmaster, “It’s never about just getting there.”
The heartwarming story, complete with comedy, drama and mystery, is guaranteed to delight audiences and be a wonderful kickoff to the holiday season.

Cast members include Mark McConkey and Benjamin Myers as the stationmasters, with Kimberly McConkey, Lora Osborn, Emily Cox, Shevon Stoddard, Brandon Jessie, Scott Waisner and Christopher McConkey playing the travelers. Children joining the cast are: Ali Odom, Cody Hodges, Rex Churchwell, Hannah-Brooke Myers, Victoria Moss, Kayla Williams, Moriah Whaley and Carrie Beth Braswell.
The production team includes Producer Peggy Horton Price, Technical Director Deborah Miller, Stage Manager Crystal LaPlue, Assistant Stage Manager Emily McConkey, Lighting Techs Lydia Whaley and Mercy Jones, Sound Technician David Combs, Ticketmaster Toshia Combs and Marketing Representative Kim Smith.
