Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas
Families will join Nancy in a very fancy holiday celebration! What could be fancier than Christmas? Presents with elegant wrapping paper, festive decorations, Christmas cookies with sprinkles - and who could forget the tree? After all, there is no such thing as too much tinsel. Ooh la la! This year, Nancy is especially excited. She bought a brand-new sparkly tree topper with her own money and can't wait to decorate the Christmas tree. But when things don't turn out the way Nancy planned, will Christmas still be splendiferous?

The first-rate traditional production never fails to enchant youngsters and grownups alike with splendid dancing, colorful costumes and scenery, eye-popping special effects, and a touch of holiday magic that inspires critics to applaud “a spectacle that never seems to age…magic that should go on and on,” and “One of the best…as good as it gets.”
Steve Solomon: My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish and I’m Home For The Holidays
From the star and creator of one of the longest running one-man comedy shows in history: “My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy” We bring you: “My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish and I’m Home for the Holidays…..the therapy continues!”
A time of Peace--a time of Joy—a time of remembering why you left home in the first place. Steve’s back with more wild and hilarious stories and characterizations about his family, friends and the other folks we meet whose sole purpose was to drive him into therapy in the first place. We all get to attend holiday dinner at Grandma’s where, if you’re under 55, you’re allowed to sit at the children’s table; thirty five over-fed people and one toilet!
It’s another laugh filled evening of family chaos from the award-winning writer and comedian Steve Solomon. It’s the time of year we hear: Peace on Earth, Good will towards men, Batteries not included and Where’s the plunger?
