Reagle Music Theatre Closes IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME, 12/12

Article Pixel

The Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston is adding even more sparkle to its annual holiday revue "It's ChristmasTime" this year.  Now in its 28th season, the joyous musical celebration of the comfort and joy of Christmas will feature heartwarming new numbers, beautiful new costumes, and a breath-taking new backdrop of Central Park designed and painted by world renowned artist Robert Moody. Created and directed by Reagle's founder and executive producer Robert Eagle, "It's ChristmasTime" will be presented at the Robinson Theatre, 617 Lexington Street, Waltham, Mass., in 10 performances only Fridays through Sundays, December 3-5 and 10-12.
 
"People of all ages have made 'It's ChristmasTime' a Boston area favorite," says Eagle. "Like other time-honored classics such as 'The Nutcracker' and 'A Christmas Carol,' our show has become a holiday tradition. Sold-out audiences have returned year after year. In this world of cynicism, commercialism, and political correctness, 'It's ChristmasTime' seems to offer families the simple gift of the true spirit of Christmas. It's a glorious cup of Christmas cheer!"

Audiences are treated to a feast of sights and sounds of the season sung and danced by a cast of nearly 40 adults and 150 children from two dozen Greater Boston communities, all accompanied by a full live orchestra. Perennial favorites include the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers, performed by a bevy of precision dancers, and the inspirational Living Nativity featuring special guest soloist Sarah Pfisterer (of Broadway's "Phantom of the Opera" and "Show Boat.") A sonorous choir of 40 adult carolers presents a Victorian Christmas, and the City Sidewalks come alive with popular classics accompanied by a hand bell choir. Eighth grader Maggie Sabella, 13 of Billerica, dances to visions of sugar plums as Clara in the Teddy Bears' Nutcracker, and 75 boys and girls from grades 1-4 are transformed into adorable elves in the colorful Santa's Workshop.

" 'It's ChristmasTime' is a holiday classic that creates a winter wonderland of treats sure to please the child in all of us," says Eagle. "It offers a chance for families to slow down and appreciate the magic of the season. Too often we get caught up in the hustle and bustle and superficial glitz and glamour that distract and pressure us at this time of year. Shows like ours endure because audiences find meaning in celebrating what really matters - the promise of peace on Earth and goodwill to all as seen through the wonder of childhood."

"It's ChristmasTime" performs Fridays, December 3 & 10 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays, December 4 & 5 and 11 & 12, at 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. The Robinson Theatre is located at 617 Lexington Street, Waltham, easily reached via Route 95.
