November 24 – December 17
THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS SHOW (abridged)
by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor
Directed by Kathie Kratochvil
Music Direction by Mazera Cox
Choreography by Shannon Marie Kerr
@ Park Hall, Ben Lomond
Running time for this performance is 2 hours, 30 minutes.
It is festive, funny, physical and fun as some of your favorite MCT comedians poke fun at many holiday traditions, while stepping on more than a few sacred cows. There’s lots of singing, a live band, and you can even bring a wrapped holiday gift of $5 value or less and participate in the audience gift exchange! Delicious holidays desserts will be served, as well as inspired madness! This hilarious show promises to boost your spirits and bring gales of holiday belly-aching laughter!
The show stars Santa Cruz area favorite comedians Karin Babbitt, W. Scott Whisler, and Jackson Wolffe, and is directed by MCT veteran Kathie Kratochvil, with musical direction by Mazera Cox, and choreography by Shannon Marie Kerr.
Audience members will enter the world belonging to the “Saint Everybody’s Non-Denominational Universalist Church” who are currently hosting their annual “Multicultural Interfaith Holiday Variety Show and Christmas Pageant.” Scheduled to perform are groups such as: The Holy Strollers (Holiday toddlers perform the Nativity story); as well as The Christmas Boys’ Choir from our Our Lady of Eternal Suspicion Catholic Church. Unfortunately, it is a dark and stormy night in the San Lorenzo Valley and all the roads into the Valley have been closed (sound familiar?). Fortunately, the costume trunks and props from all the scheduled performing acts arrived before the big storm. Unfortunately, the scheduled performers can’t get into the Valley. So, the evening’s hosts must perform the show themselves! Join us as Mountain Community Theater rekindles the joy, inner-child and familial dysfunction inside us all!
Advisory: This show is recommended for ages 12 and older.
