27 SANTAS AND AN ELF CALLED KEVIN to Play NYC, Regional Theatres

With original book, lyrics and music by Andy Street and Jonathan Kydd, "27 Santas and an Elf Called Kevin" puts an all new spin on the holiday characters we know and love, while introducing a few new characters kids of all ages will love. The New York tour starts at the Broadway Comedy Club (318 West 53rd Street, New York, NY 10019) on December 7, 2014 and then head upstate to the Paramount (Peekskill, NY) and Emelin (Mamaroneck, NY) theaters Dec 13-21.

Santa Claus is coming to town! But so is his jealous twin brother Gunta who'd like to be the top man, himself. The good news is that elves Mitch, Pru, and Jill, and Kevin, of course, are just the ones to outwit the evil Gunta and his hench-elves, Bob and McNasty.

It all plays out in the wonderful musical about saving the magic of Christmas by Andy Street and Jonathan Kydd. Andy wrote music for Sesame Street, Madeline and Strawberry Shortcake before becoming an American Idol coach and adjudicator.

On Sunday December 7, the show will be presented at the Broadway Comedy Club. December 13-14, there will be four performances at the Paramount Theater in Peekskill, NY. December 17-21, the Emelin Theater in Mamaroneck, NY presents 22 performances.

At each performance a limited number of guests will be invited to meet Santa and pose for photos. In NYC VIP ticket holders will all get to meet Santa and Kevin. Check at the Box Office with special offers at the other theaters.

27 Santas and an Elf Called Kevin stars Walt Frasier as both Santa and his twin brother, Gunta. The cast is rounded out by Patrick Reidy, William Goulet Kean, Elizabeth Greenfeld, and

Laurice Fattal. Directed by Andy Street, himself, the show brings English Pantomime - which can be found at every theater in London's West End during the holidays - to the American Stage. This production has something wonderful for the whole family.
