Ring in the Holiday Season with TAM's EVERY CHRISTMAS STORY EVER TOLD…
Start the holiday season off with a BANG. TAM's hilarious holiday extravaganza Every Christmas Story Ever Told...(and then some!) is the perfect opportunity to ring in the season that will have you laughing into the New Year! The play begins as yet another version of A Christmas Carol and takes "a wrong turn in Albuquerque" on the way to a B.H.C. (Beloved Holiday Classic) Smackdown between A Christmas Carol and It's a Wonderful Life. Santy Claus, Rudolph (or in this case Gustav), the Grinch, and just about every other seasonal character makes an appearance in this fast, furious, and slightly irreverent take on holiday classics and traditions.
Here's the story: Instead of performing Charles Dickens' beloved holiday classic for the umpteenth time, three intrepid actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told-add a sprinkling of Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient times to contemporary pop-culture, and every carol ever sung-and you've got a madcap romp through the holiday season.
Every Christmas Story Ever Told... (and then some!) features James Noel Hoban, Ian Kramer, and Grace Bauer; directed by Dawn McAndrews with set and lights by Jim Alexander, costume design by Elizabeth Rocha, and sound design by Elizabeth Nelson. Every Christmas Story Ever Told... is sponsored by TexTech Industries. This production is best suited for revelers ages 13 and up.
