Stages Repertory Theatre Presents Three Fresh Holiday Shows: The Ultimate Christmas Show, Panto Star Force and Who’s Holiday!

November 7, 2018 - December 30, 2018

Stages’ holiday season offers comic alternatives to traditional seasonal shows with three productions including the regional premiere of the irreverent yet heartwarming The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged), the world premiere of Panto Star Force, the latest in Stages’ series of original Pantos for audiences of all ages, and the regional premiere of Who’s Holiday!, an adult-themed How the Grinch Stole Christmas parody told entirely in Seussian rhyme. The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged) and Who’s Holiday! will be offered in true repertory style, playing in the same theatre at different performance times. Who’s Holiday! will include late-night performances at 9:30pm on select dates.

The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged)

Stages’ Arena Theatre
November 7 – December 23, 2018
All performance times 2pm and 7pm

It’s the Annual Holiday Variety Show and Christmas Pageant at St. Everybody’s Non-Denominational Universalist Church—where all faiths are welcome because we’ll believe anything! There’s just one minor problem: none of the acts scheduled to perform have arrived. Now it’s up to three quick-witted church members to perform the ENTIRE Variety Show and Christmas Pageant by themselves! An irreverent yet heartwarming romp through tradition, The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged) bursts with festive, slapstick fun as these cheerfully ridiculous clowns celebrate all of our favorite holiday traditions—at once.

Stages’ Yeager Theatre
November 21 – December 30, 2018
All performance times 2pm and 7pm

Family Fun Days: Join the cast for fun activities and refreshments following the 2pm matinee performances on November 24, December 1, 8, 15, 22 and 26.
Panto Star Force is an adventurous, cosmic blast of blockbuster hilarity! Jed, a farm boy from the planet Cypress, joins forces with a zany band of space rebels, robots, and furry bartenders (and Buttons, of course!) to stop the powerful Emperor Snorkelfish and Dark Tater from taking over the galaxy. Come ready to laugh, cheer and boo in true Panto style, with plenty of toe-tapping music and intergalactic fun for the whole family!

Who’s Holiday!
by Matthew Lombardo
Stages’ Arena Theatre (in repertory with The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged))
December 5 – 30, 2018
All performance times 7pm and 9:30pm
9:30pm performances offered on December 14, 15, 22, 26, 28 and 29

It’s Christmas Eve and the now 40-year-old Cindy Lou Who lives in her shoddy trailer home on Mount Crumpit, former hideout of the infamous Grinch. While she awaits her Christmas party guests, she regales listeners with the bizarre journey her life has taken since that fateful night in Whoville when a certain Grinch tried to steal Christmas. This hysterical and wild parody is a must-see for mischievous ADULT theatre-goers this holiday season! Not suitable for those easily offended.

Regular tickets start at $25 . To purchase, call the Stages Box Office at 713.527.0123 or reserve online at www.stagestheatre.com.
