“A Child’s Christmas in Wales,” Dylan Thomas’ exquisite paean to childhood and Christmas, will be presented in a dramatic reading with music accompaniment Saturday, Dec. 11 at the Episcopal Church of St. John Baptist, Main Street/Route 1 in Thomaston; and Sunday, Dec. 12 at Rock City Books & Coffee, 328 Main St., Rockland. Both presentations begin at 2 p.m.

The reading will be performed by Erika Pfander and Peter Jenks, and the Hynd family — David, Gigi and Peter — will provide the music. All the performers are from Thomaston. Pfander, past director of the Chamber Theatre of Maine, and her various friends have presented this Christmas gem every year since 1993.
