Celebrate the Holidays in the Twilight Zone with Step1 Theatre Project's UNUSUAL CHRISTMAS STORIES
Step1 Theatre Project, a rising star in the indie theater skyline, presents a half-dozen holiday tales ... only if you're celebrating in the Twilight Zone - Falsehoods, Fallacies & Fairytales: Unusual Christmas Stories by Ashley Lauren Rogers.

Producers, Jazmyn Arroyo & Janelle Zapata, invite you to depart from the usual tear-jerkers and cartoon classics for a tale of an ugly sweater that speaks; a bachelor party - without a bachelor; a pissed-off elf; love in a time of time travel, and guest appearances by Satan and the apocalypse!

Step1 Theatre Project's mission is to practice and promote artistic freedom. While they work to present their our own bold, meaningful productions, they facilitate the creative visions of many independent artists in NYC not being realized due to the financial challenges associated with funding their own work. Step1 does this by sharing resources, promoting new works, donation of funds, rehearsal space, and/or performance space - and anything possible to foster and inspire the next generation of artists and encourage them to produce their projects fearlessly, regardless of the challenges.
