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!

If Henry VIII had a Facebook

Last night I went out to DeSales University to check out the preview of William Shakespeare’s Henry VIII and, as I expected, I got to see all the juicy Tudor Court drama unfold.

For this rendition of Henry VIII, the cast went back to the roots of Shakespeare’s time when actors were only given a short time to rehearse, had no formal director, or set and costume designers.

All I knew from reading the description on the web site was that the cast consisted of only four actors who would be playing all of the roles and I honestly wondered how they were going to pull that off.
