This hilariously heartwarming story follows a young Brian as he heads to the "mean streets" of Oakland to buy his mom a Christmas present. Rife with references to 1970s Oakland, "The Jewelry Box" recounts Brian's adventures as he scours the "help wanted" ads, applies for jobs, and collects bottles, inching his way toward the perfect Christmas gift.
The irresistibly charming solo performer Brian Copeland returns with his annual family-friendly holiday show, which premiered here in 2013. Six-year-old, preternaturally mature Brian heads deep into Oakland to buy Mom a Christmas present—the eponymous jewelry box. First, though, he must earn the $11.97 to pay for it--by Christmas Eve. He learns a few life lessons along the way. Developed with and directed by go-to solo show guru David Ford.
