Orlando Shakes Holiday Lineup
Orlando Shakespeare Theater (Orlando Shakes), in partnership with UCF, is thrilled to present Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!) from November 30 – December 30, 2016 in the Margeson Theater. Originally developed at Orlando Shakes’ PlayFest, Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!) remains one of the Theater’s most hilarious and successful holiday shows to date.
What begins as an annual production of “A Christmas Carol,” soon devolves into an irreverent look at numerous holiday classics including “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Frosty,” “Rudolph,” “Charlie Brown,” and more. Three actors (with the help of Santa) send up everything from Dickens to Dr. Seuss in 90 minutes of high-octane jollity and frivolity.
“We knew instantly that it was hilariously funny and the perfect treat for the holiday season. We are so happy to be bringing it back this year,” said Jim Helsinger, the artistic director for Orlando Shakespeare Theater Orlando Shakespeare Theater is supported by United Arts of Central Florida. The Theater is also sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the State of Florida.
