Must-See Holiday Shows

Naughty or nice (or naughty and nice!), here are some stocking stuffer tickets sure to please those on your list:

The annual British Panto has become a holiday tradition in Fremont full of raucous good fun.

For their tenth anniversary, the Fremont Players weave two classic fairy tales into one hilarious British Panto with original songs and music performed live by the Fremont Philharmonic.

Sleeping Beauty and the Pea delivers large colorful characters, men dressed as women, and women dressed as men. You'll be encouraged to boo at the villain, cheer for the hero, and applaud the Magical Cow!  As always, the Players promise enough jokes and innuendos will be fired over the kids' heads to keep everyone entertained.

The Panto runs twice a day on Saturdays and Sundays from December 15th though January 13th at Hale's Palladium.  Advance tickets recommended.

Land Of The Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker is a seasonal favorite featuring many of your favorite festival Burlesque performers and more.  Back at Seattle's illustrious Triple Door, Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker has delighted holiday revelers since 2006, giving the ballet a bawdy makeover!

This A-List cast of Seattle Burlesque superstars including Lily Verlaine, Miss Indigo Blue, Kitten La Rue, Waxie Moon, Babette La Fave, and Jasper McCann become the denizens of the exclusive after-hours party where Nutcracker characters unwind. Our principal dancers are joined by a Corps du Burlesque featuring Inga Ingénue, Polly Wood, Lou Henry Hoover, Holly Pop, and Aerial Suites. This power-house ensemble reveals the offstage lives of the staid characters of The Nutcracker as they shed their inhibitions…and their costumes!

Land of the Sweets from December 13th through December 22nd at the Triple Door.  Advance tickets recommended.

If your holiday elves are more in a mood for theatre, "the Granddaddy of all holiday shows” (Seattle PI) A Christmas Carol is playing at ACT (A Contemporary Theater) though December 30th.

This ripping good telling of the classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge, the curmudgeonly businessman who requires the intervention of a few spectral guides to understand the true meaning of Christmas and life continues to remind us what's really worth celebrating - at the holidays, or any time!

Also at Seattle celebrated Can Can cabaret you can catch the Can Can Castaway's Holiday Cabaret.  If tantalizing feats and naughty treats are on your Christmas list this is the show for you. A spectacle of holiday cabaret, comedy, burlesque and modern dance come together in this holiday treat.  A perfect holiday date night with the Can Can's delectable menu of food and entertainment.  Holiday cabaret runs December 14th, 21st, and 28th.

Finally, once the presents are unwrapped and the stockings unstuffed, put on that party hat and ring in the New Year with Moisture Festival at our New Year's Eve Extravaganza

Happy Holidays from our family to you and yours!
