Behold! The trailer for Encore Musical Theatre's original musical Christmas Caroled, written by the theatre's co-founder Dan Cooney and Dayle Ann Hunt, his writing partner. The show is musical take on Charlie Dickens' Christmas Carol, through the scrim of a 1960s Christmas special. This show has everything you have come to expect from the holidays: the tree, the presents, the dancing, the strained family relationships, "O Holy Night" sung by a choir of freaking angels, the alcoholism, the sequin bow ties, the washed-up show biz types, the time travel, the men in their underwear. Seriously: everything.
The show opens for its world premiere Friday (with a special preview night Thursday, November 20) and runs through December 21st. Adult tickets range from $28 to $32, and discounts are available for seniors, students and youth. If there are seats remaining for the show, $15 student rush tickets are available at the box office one hour prior to the show.
Tickets are available here.
