Photo Flash: Sneak Peek at HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS at The Dio

The Dio - Dining & Entertainment, Livingston County's professional, award winning dinner theatre, is very excited to present their original musical, Home for the Holidays, directed by Steve DeBruyne with musical direction by BrIan Rose and choreography by Michelle Marzejon. 2016 marks the fourth year that Home for the Holidays has been presented in Livingston County. The show was written by Dio co-founders, Steve DeBruyne and Matthew G. Tomich in 2012. Scroll down for a sneak peek!

When the cast of Home for the Holidays gathers for their Christmas Eve performance, Stage Manager, Nick and his wife expect a smooth evening of seasonal fun. What they get is a leading lady who has locked herself in her dressing room, her understudy who isn't quite up to the job, and a leading man whose holiday spirit is closer to that of the Grinch than Kris Kringle. This original musical takes the audience on and off the stage with the cast, as Nick tries to reinstate their faith in the holidays with a lot of Christmas spirit and a touch of magic.

All tickets include The Dio's dinner buffet, a non-alcoholic beverage, dessert and the show. The menu for Home for the Holidays will include homemade bread sticks topped with melted butter and garlic, crisp garden salad with choice of dressing, fresh green beans sautéed in butter and seasoning, smashed potatoes and gravy, homemade stuffing, thick sliced boneless turkey breast slow roasted in its own juices, and sliced honey ham with pineapples, plus dessert served during intermission.

Home for the Holidays features performances by Anne Bauman, Alexis Benson, Sarah Brown, Gavin Burwell, Brittany Chapa, Molly Cunningham, Steve DeBruyne, Adam DeGregorio, Angela Dill, Elizabeth Jaffe, Jim Moll, Matthew Robert Pecek, Derek Ridge, Jared Schneider and Natalie Rose Sevick.

Performances take place at The Dio, 177 E. Main Street, Pinckney Michigan, 48169 from November 25 through December 31, Friday and Saturday evenings, and Sunday afternoons. There will be one Thursday matinee on December 15, and added evening performances on Tuesday, December 20, Wednesday, December 21 and Thursday, December 22.

Guests who join us for our New Year's Eve party on December 31 will enjoy the final performance of Home for the Holidays, including dinner and dessert as usual. Following the performance, there will be dancing to live music from Ann Arbor band Accidentally Hip, as well as a cash bar and complimentary champagne toast at midnight. After midnight, the buffet will be filled with delicious pizzas made in house and other snacks to fill your belly before you head out into 2017!
