Theater Week – Festive


Schubert Theatre, New York City

A listing of Triangle theater performances
through December 24, 2018



* Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer: The Musical – An annual presentation, this stage musical version of the Beloved Holiday Classic™ is based on the venerable 1964 Rankin/Bass animated TV Xmas special (which vastly expanded the mythology of Johnny Marks’ 1949 hit song for Gene Autry — itself based on a 1939 Christmas promotional coloring book created by Robert L. May for Montgomery Ward in Chicago). Get your tickets early — this one sells faster than the bargain table at Misfit Toys “R” Us. This week: Friday 6:30, Saturday and Sunday 11:00, 2:00, and 5:00, Monday 11:00. Closes Monday. Fletcher Theater, DECPA, Raleigh.

* The Santaland Diaries – Stage adaptation of the David Sedaris NPR holiday staple, featuring Jesse Gephart as Crumpet, a disgruntled Santa elf working at Macy’s. Presented by Theatre in the Park. This week: Friday and Saturday 8:00, Sunday 3:00. Closes Sunday. TIP, Raleigh.

* A Trailer Park Christmas – A Triangle holiday tradition, now in its 11th year, this interactive, family-friendly entertainment follows the Dodson/Hussy family as they grapple with crazy neighbors, ghosts, fruitcakes and a Yuletide tornado. Created by Rachel Klem and Jeffrey Moore. Produced by Rachel Klem. This week: Thursday and Saturday 7:30, Sunday 2:00. Closes Sunday. Kennedy- McIlwee Theatre, Thompson Hall, NCSU Campus, Raleigh.
