Part Vaudeville, part “Complete Works of William Shakespeare,” “Abridged, Every Christmas Story Ever Told” is a fast, furious and slightly irreverent look at the holiday classics and traditions we all remember. From Frosty to Rudolph and the Grinch to “It’s A Wonderful Life,” no pop culture holiday icon is spared in this whirlwind of holiday merriment.
Santa Claus, Rudolph, the Grinch — and just about every other holiday character — make an appearance in this raucous comedy when three actors decide that rather than perform “A Christmas Carol” yet again, they’ll retell every Christmas story ever told in only 90 minutes! A madcap romp for the holiday season, this farce also features Christmas traditions from around the world plus every carol ever sung. With Frosty and Charlie Brown and George Bailey, you’ll laugh yourself all the way to the New Year.
Performances take place this weekend, Dec. 4, 5 and 6 at 7:30 p.m., and Dec. 7 at 2:30 p.m., at the Washington Street Theatre, 702 Washington St., Olean, N.Y.
All tickets are $10 and can be purchased by calling (716) 373-SHOW, or purchase them online at www.OleanWorkshop.org.
