Recently, I became a member of the Seaside Repertory Theatre, Northwest Florida’s premier Theatre! The Seaside Repertory Theater was founded in the spring of 2001 and has attracted some of the finest talent from around the country. The Rep entertains over 25,000 people each year and seeks to be the premier arts organization in Northwest Florida by providing programs that will add to the quality of life in our area.
Currently playing at the Seaside Repertory Theatre is: Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some!) from December 8 -30. By Michael Carlton, James FitzGerald & John K. Alvarez
Here is a description of the show as written on the Seaside Rep Theatre’s website:
Three actors, in what starts out as a pared-down version of the Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol, stage a mutiny and, in an effort to breathe new life into an old tradition, attempt to tell “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some!).” Along the way, we are provided with factoids about Christmas traditions from around the world, watch a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade go horribly wrong, and hear every Christmas Carol ever written in 90 seconds. Full of seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop culture. From Tiny Tim to Rudolph the Red-Nosed reindeer, from Frosty to the Grinch, nothing is spared in this rollicking tour de farce! The story of the stingy and sour Ebenezer Scrooge is there too, but it seems the actors have overlooked “It’s a Wonderful Life,” so Marley morphs into Clarence, Angel Third Class, and Scrooge morphs into Jimmy Stewart combining two of the greatest Christmas stories ever told.
Tickets may be purchased online or by stopping by at Amavida in Seaside or Rosemary Beach. Become a member, support the theatre and save 20% off the price of the tickets! Hope to see you there!
