John K. Alvarez
John K. Alvarez is the ninth out of ten children and he was raised by two parents who encouraged him to write. Coming from a large family, it was not hard for Mr. Alvarez to know practically every Christmas story, since he has heard them many times over the years. Besides Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!), Mr. Alvarez has collaborated with other writers on other plays, such as The Trial of Blackbeard, the Pirate (with The Shaky Pudding Players) and Cape May on Fire (with Eric Hissom and Michael Laird) as well as writing plays all by himself, such as A Voice in the Mist, Uncle John's Christmas Story, and Losing Myself (in palaces of sand). Mr. Alvarez wishes to dedicate his contribution to this play to his parents, for teaching him that the best way to enjoy the holidays is with humor.
