Every Christmas Story Ever Told!! opened to a sold-out house last night, and got a giant spontaneous standing ovation at the curtain call! The show is a ton of silly, sweet, heartfelt holiday fun, and the whole audience had a good time.
Because it’s only a 2 week run, and a remount from last season, we didn’t invite or expect reviewers, but the very kind Jim Fordyce from Lansing came, and gave us the following “4 out of 4” review on his Michigan Entertainment website:
Last season’s smash hit at the Williamston Theater is back and this year I corrected the oversight I made in 2006 and did not miss it! I was in the opening night audience for a big cup of holiday hilarity. The presentation begins as we get ready to watch the Dickens Classic “A Christmas Carol” and then one cast member balks and we go with the cast on what is billed as an “impromptu romp through the BHCs (Beloved Holiday Classics)! ” Joseph Albright, Aral Gribble and Chris Korte are absolutely delightful as they take us from Frosty the Snowman and a send up of Rudolph to the Peanuts Gang and Its a Wonderful Life. Add in some off beat lessons about Christmas around the World, and some audience participation and you get 2 hours of Holiday Fun that gets the perfect Four out of Fordyce!
Here is the only problem with this show: My most excellent holiday friend Chris P. at the theater told me during intermission even though they have added a show, almost all the performances are sold out. SO,DO NOT WAIT! Click here for the Theater’s Web site and get one of the few remaining seats.
