The Night Before The Night Before Christmas

Tower Theatrenb4-250

7:30pm

A Christmas comedy by Cricket Daniel and directed by Susan Benson. A reprisal of the 2015 sold out holiday hit starring the original cast!

Lou has wrestled with a big ball of tangled Christmas lights for the last time! He is grabbing the sunblock, his Elvis in Paradise album and his wife Carol, and hopping on the Pineapple Express to Hawaii! Escaping New Jersey, the freezing cold, his nutty family and most of all… The Holidays, is exactly what Lou plans to do. However, a freak snowstorm leaves the couple stranded in the airport and their dream of sipping Pina Coladas on the beach is in peril. Will a couple of unexpected characters help restore Lou’s Christmas Spirit in the St. Nick of time?

A Pearl Harbor Christmas

Redmond High School

7pm

This December, the 75th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, drama students at Redmond High School step into the hearts and minds of the people who experienced the abrupt plunge into war. A Pearl Harbor Christmas depicts how the home front responded to the news that Japan had decimated the US Pacific Fleet.

xmaspearlharborA Pearl Harbor Christmas showcases big band swing favorites like “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” and “You’re a Lucky Guy.” The radio variety show features the torch song “Stormy Weather” and that touchstone of wartime hope, “The White Cliffs of Dover.” Live sound effects and period advertising bring us back to a time when doctors chatted up the health benefits of cigarettes and beauticians used Listerine to control dandruff.

Free for veterans, $5 seniors and students, $10 general admission
