The Christmas Cabaret
New American Theater will present a special holiday production, The Christmas Cabaret, opening Dec. 1 and running through Dec. 24.
The program is a fun-filled evening of holiday song and stories starting with songs drawn from childhood TV shows, to songs from Gift of the Magi. The second half starts with some fun songs with a twist and different point of view of the holiday season, but then moving into songs reflecting the real meaning of the season. A cutting from A Childs Christmas in Wales will be a transition to the true meaning of the Christmas season. The program concludes with a beautiful medley of everyones favorite songs at Christmas time.
The show was developed from an idea by Andrea Bear, written by Kathy Stevens, Jerry Stevens and Tim Anderson. It is directed by Carl G. Balson.
Performance times are Saturday, 4:30 and 8:30 p.m.; Sunday, 7:30 p.m; Thursday, 7:30 p.m. and Friday, 8 p.m. On Dec. 24, there will be a special performance at 2 p.m.
Ticket prices are $10 for all performances. Students, seniors and subscribers and groups of 10 or more tickets are $8. Special office party rates are also available.
