The new dinner and a show at home experience will launch December 1.

The producers of ELEANOR'S VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS WISH - THE MUSICAL, the family-friendly holiday production available for streaming through December 27, 2020, and Gene & Georgetti, Chicago's oldest steakhouse, have partnered this holiday season to launch a new Dinner and a Show at HOME experience beginning December 1.

"We're thrilled to be able to partner with our friends at Gene & Georgetti to create a memorable experience for our home audience. Our wish is to keep the magic of the holidays sparkling in the eyes of children no matter what challenges we face this year," said Denise McGowan Tracy, executive producer of ELEANOR'S VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS WISH - THE MUSICAL. "Gene & Georgetti is such an iconic restaurant in the city of Chicago, and we're excited to come together to create lasting memories during this very different holiday season."

An enchanting, heartwarming production, ELEANOR'S VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS WISH - THE MUSICAL tells the story of a rag doll named Eleanor who lives in the magical world of The North Pole. Despite her love for her family there, including Santa, Mrs. "Cookie" Claus, Clara Claus, and the elves - Twinkle, Sprinkle, and Sparkle, Eleanor's very merry Christmas wish is for a best friend and home of her own. Realizing that wishing is not enough, she writes a letter to Santa expressing her dream. The letter opens the door to answering many questions and to the journey which leads to her wish (and others) coming true. Adding to the family fun is the availability of two immersive Eleanor's Very Merry Christmas Party in a Box options, ranging in price from $45 - $60 plus shipping and handling fees. Party boxes are available in limited supply and on a first-come, first-served basis. The 2020 virtual production will feature the recorded opening night performance from the successful 2019 World Premiere as well as additional holiday music. Tickets and party boxes can be purchased at
