"The Jewelry Box"

Brian Copeland as a 6-Year-Old

When a six-year-old boy decides he must buy his Mom a wooden jewelry box with gold latch and rich velvet interior for her Christmas, there is nothing that can deter his big-eyed dream. 

The $11.97 needed for this White Front Stores purchase is like a Fort Knox fortune to the young Brian Copeland.  His retelling those boyhood adventures in acquiring that momentous sum is a rich holiday gift for any audience member who ventures this December to The Marsh in San Francisco to hear this master storyteller recount once again his 2012 runaway hit, The Jewelry Box.
