It’s Fall! The banks of The Fox are a blazing color riot! Eyes popping (or poking, heh heh), I’m excited for today, the start of A Christmas Story rehearsals! This is a special week afforded us to give this cast of kids a jump start on their show-stopping dances by Choreographer Rhett Guter and get the principals started on their music and staging with Music Director Tom Vendafreddo and Director Nick Bowling. This is a first for us; the show is that big, ladies and gentlemen!
The creators of this musical adaptation of the popular indie film have turned it into a Broadway blockbuster receiving Tony nominations, just two years ago, for Best Musical, Best Book and Best Score! Whether you know the movie or not, this is a new musical you do not want to miss! Riding the wave of Oklahoma!, allow me to share a quote from Vanity Fair about this white hot songwriting team, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, referring to these young men as “The heirs of Rodgers and Hammerstein!” Promise: this will be your new favorite musical!
Our season subscribers are in for a fantastic family holiday treat from Paramount this year, and you still have time to join them if you haven’t already!
