Come to the Christmas City Follies!

Sure, we’ve all seen a performance of  “A Christmas Carol” and we’ve all seen “It’s a Wonderful Life” on TV and you bet someone in your house still owns a copy of “Jon Denver and The Muppets: A Christmas Together.” But, if you haven’t seen Touchstone Theatre’s “Christmas City Follies,” you haven’t seen it all.

The high-spirited, homegrown, vaudevillian variety show celebrates the Christmas season in the Christmas City in a way you probably haven’t seen before. Pirates have made an appearance, as have weird robot aliens, and a few elves that maybe have drank a few too many cups of eggnog. It’s a fun Christmas party and you and yours are more than welcome to come join in on the fun!

People mentioned Sweetarts, Cadbury Eggs, maple flavored anything, certain types of name brand chocolate, among others. One candy that was not mentioned however, was our locally-made Lehigh Valley Peeps.
