It’s the most wonderful night(s) of the year!

Always merry, bright, joyful, and family-friendly, “The Christmas Show” is back to delight young and old alike with holiday-themed theatre, music, comedy, and everyone’s favorite…hot cocoa and homemade Christmas cookies!

This year’s event features the full-length holiday comedy…

It’s a Wonderful Carol, Actually
Directed by Darcy Lawrence

The fictitious “Westside Community Players” have decided to stage a live production of Frank Capra’s classic film It’s a Wonderful Life. When a winter storm takes out a bridge, leaving most of the cast stranded in another town, it’s up to the show’s stage manager and a rag-tag group of crew members, ushers, and audience to save the day. After all, the show must go on! But between the jilted actor who is still bitter about not having been cast, the spotlight-stealing vocalist determined to turn the show into a musical, and the wealthy philanthropist who can’t quite remember which Christmas film she’s reenacting…will they be able to?

FEATURING: Barbara Berge, Karlia Bertness, Kayla Cooley, Stacy Fischer, Lucy Furuheim, Alexander Herd, Cody Larsen, CJ McCarty, Nikki Paige, Alex Gregory Robbins, Pete Theodore, and William Derik Webster.
