Photo Flash: First Look at Sierra Rep's EVERY CHRISTMAS STORY EVER TOLD...AND THEN SOME

What do you get when you whirl together Rudolph, Tiny Tim, Cindy Lou Who, Frosty, fruitcake, Santa, Scrooge, big-city Christmas parades and holiday folklore from around the globe? A hilarious, joyful mash-up that has theater audiences from coast to coast lining up for more. Find out what the raves are about when Sierra Rep serves up Every Christmas Story Ever Told…and Then Some, playing at Sierra Repertory Theatre's East Sonora stage now through December 16. Get a first look at the cast in the photos below!
 
The fun begins when a small acting troupe is about to perform Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" for the umpteenth time, but instead the three actors decide to take a detour. With the audience's help, they round up an exhaustive selection of "Beloved Holiday Traditions" and proceed to pack them all into the next 90 minutes. No myth, carol or seasonal icon goes unskewered, and the result is what The Los Angeles Times called "brashly enjoyable," "a knee-slapping hoot" and "high-spirited fun."
 
The show has become a tradition of its own at theaters around the country, where regional companies have brought it back four and five years in a row by audience demand. It's a fast-paced blend of "It's a Wonderful Life," "A Christmas Carol" and a crazy mix of Christmas music.
 
Guest director Marc Liby, long-time artistic director of the Great Plains Theatre in Kansas, is crafting Sierra Rep's production. His trio of performers includes SRT Company Actor Ty Smith and New York performers J.D. Kellman and Tommy J. Dose, both new to SRT.
 
Guest costumer Megan A. Moore is coming from New York to create the mish mash of costumes, and scenic design is by guest artist Jordan Egbertson. SRT's resident artists fill out the production team, with props by Mercy Sharpe, lights by Christopher Van Tuyl and stage management by Lia Metz.
 
SRT's production of Every Christmas Story Ever Told…and Then Some is presented with the help of season sponsor Clarke Broadcasting and the support of Goodhue Properties.
 
Every Christmas Story Ever Told… plays through Sunday, December 16 at SRT's East Sonora stage. Thursday and Friday performances begin at 7, Saturday evening performances are at 8 and Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees begin at 2. Ticket prices range from $24 to $30 depending on the day of the performance. A special talk back discussion with the cast will be held immediately after the Thursday, December 6 performance.
 
This show is rated PG for audiences ages 12 and up. For more information on content, show dates or to make reservations, call Sierra Rep's box office at (209) 532-3120 or visit Sierra Rep at www.sierrarep.org.
