Carrollwood Players Announces Holiday Offerings

Over the next few weeks, Carrollwood Players Theatre, 4333 Gunn Highway, will be alive with laughter and song.

After the nearly sold-out holiday production of Scrooge the Musical, running through December 19, on Friday, December 11 and Saturday, December 12 will be Carrollwood Players' answer to Who's Line Is It Anyway.

Nine and Numb, a cast of talented improvisational actors, will put into action audience suggestions during the 11pm 18+ Jingle Jam improv show.

This special two-night comedy event will benefit the Toys For Tots' Toy Drive. If a patron brings a new, unwrapped toy to Jingle Jam, he will see the improv show for free. Otherwise, cost is $10 adult and $5 student with ID. Tickets are available at the Box Office each evening.

"We're so excited to be able to help out such a fantastic charity this year with this event. Too many kids go without during this time of year and we wanted to give back in the best way we could," said Kelly Clow, Founder and Executive Director of Nine and Numb Entertainment, LLC. "If we can get people laughing along the way that just sweetens the deal."

Following on Jingle Jam's heels on Sundays, December 13 and December 20 at 7 pm in Black Box Theatre is the original musical, written and directed by Jen Martin, starring Adriane Falcon, James Faurote, Erica Garraffa, Jeff Lukas and Eric Misener.

Jukebox Holiday musical revue brings back many of the colorful characters from the popular Jukebox Saturday Night. The gang once again gathers at Big Bart's Burger Barn, now sparkling with holiday decorations, and offers up a wide array of holiday songs that promise to put the Scroogiest of Scrooges in a festive mood. From the bouncy "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" and "Jingle Bell Rock" to standards like "White Christmas" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas," Jukebox Holiday is guaranteed to lift your spirits and make you want to sing along.

Jennifer said, "Jukebox Holiday is a fun, energetic musical for the whole family. Join the gang at Big Bart's Burger Barn for an evening filled with your favorite holiday songs and a story that will warm your heart."

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at http://carrollwood-players-theatre.ticketleap.com/jukebox-holiday/.

Organized by Tiger von Pagel, as a close to the holiday season is the first ever Yuletide Fantasy Costume Ball from 7-11pm on Saturday, December 26 in Black Box Theatre.

"Imagine a fantasy holiday party in an ice castle. Guests might be elves, wizards, fairies, princesses, whatever festive creature their imagination creates. We'll have refreshments, live music from the students at Jim Chambers Music Box, a raffle, a costume contest and then finish the night with dance music," said Tiger. "It will be the most magical party we can create!"

Tickets are $15 online or $20 at the door and can be purchased at http://carrollwood-players-theatre.ticketleap.com/yuletide-fantasy-ball/

Throughout the season and especially during the holidays, season tickets are available for purchase online and at the box office for the theatre lover on anyone's holiday gift-giving list. http://carrollwood-players-theatre.ticketleap.com/2015---2016-season-tickets/
