Panto Hansel and Gretel- Yeager Theatre

Follow the breadcrumbs into an outrageous reimagining of the tale of Hansel and Gretel as two selfish Houston parents pursue their dream to be stars of the theatre after leaving their social-media-obsessed children in the woods. It’s going to take Buttons to save the day, but he’s busy battling an ambitious wood-nymph determined to take his place as a comic sidekick. Come ready to laugh, cheer and boo as all your Panto favorites join a new cast of characters to sing, dance and make joy for the whole family!

A Christmas Carol- The Owen Theatre

Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he’s forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.

It's A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play @ Stageworks Theatre

What better way to ring in the holiday season than with Frank Capra’s classic film brought to life as a 1946 radio broadcast, complete with vintage commercials and a live foley (sound effects) artist. George Bailey, a man with all the right stuff except luck, takes stock of his life one fateful Christmas Eve. His feckless guardian angel Clarence shows him that success can be measured in many ways, leading to an ending warmer than a hot mug of cocoa on a cold winter’s night. Fun for the whole family starting November 29 - December 22, 2019!
