Seaside Rep Presents Every Christmas Story Every Told (and then some!)
December 8, 2011 by SoWal Staff
Three actors, in what starts out as a pared-down version of the Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol, stage a mutiny and, in an effort to breathe new life into an old tradition, attempt to tell “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some!).”
Along the way, we are provided with factoids about Christmas traditions from around the world, watch a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade go horribly wrong, and hear every Christmas Carol ever written in 90 seconds.
Full of seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop culture. From Tiny Tim to Rudolph the Red-Nosed reindeer, from Frosty to the Grinch, nothing is spared in this rollicking tour de farce! The story of the stingy and sour Ebenezer Scrooge is there too, but it seems the actors have overlooked “It’s a Wonderful Life,” so Marley morphs into Clarence, Angel Third Class, and Scrooge morphs into Jimmy Stewart combining two of the greatest Christmas stories ever told.
Catch it at the Rep theater in Seaside from December 8 - 30. Buy tickets online.
