Horizon Theatre Stages World Premiere Of WAFFLE PALACE CHRISTMAS
Horizon Theatre Company is ringing in the holiday season with a new tradition! Waffle Palace Christmas, a sequel to the smash-hit show inspired by real events at Waffle House restaurants, will hit the Little Five Points stage from November 16 through December 30. The anticipated world premiere will include familiar faces as well as new, charming cast members dishing up heartfelt southern humor-scattered, smothered and covered in a spicy holiday sauce.
"After staging several sell-out runs of Waffle Palace in past years, we're excited to bring back the beloved all-night diner and its staff in a new edition perfect for the holiday season," said Co-Artistic/Producing Director Lisa Adler. "This festive spin on the cordial comedy will serve up a new tradition, filled with laughter and holiday spirit sure to satisfy everyone for seasons to come!"
Waffle Palace Christmas picks up with the vintage Waffle Palace now thriving in the middle of a new modern city multi-use complex. The holiday season is in full swing and the staff is adjusting to new roles, an inexperienced employee and quirky regulars. With Christmas cheer aplenty among the diverse staff and diners, Krampus, a legendary, shape-shifting holiday villain, appears over the restaurant to sabotage the spirit and challenge all in his path.
Waffle Palace Christmas will run November 16 - December 30 (Press Opening November 28). Performances are Wednesday through Sunday at 8 p.m. Additional performances will run on Tuesday, December 11 and 18. Additional weekday matinee performances in December will be added soon! There will be no performances on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Tickets start at $30 for weekdays and $35 for weekends. Prices are subject to change and will rise as performances fill up. Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets early for best prices. Seating is general admission, but attendees can upgrade to the VIP experience for an additional $15, which includes reserved seating and a holiday beverage. Our intimate theatre is in the heart of Inman Park and Little Five Points at the corner of Euclid and Austin Avenues (1083 Austin Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA 30307), and includes FREE parking.
