Lamb’s Players Theatre has announced casting for its annual production, Lamb’s Players Festival of Christmas. A play cycle which features a different original Christmas play every year, this year the theatre returns to a favorite Festival, “It’s Christmas and It’s Live!” – playing November 30 through December 30th.
This marks the 33rd year of Lamb’s Players Festival of Christmas. It continues to be one of the region’s favorite holiday traditions. Festival scripts have traveled a wide variety of locales and time periods, from a fairy tale kingdom to an English seaside inn, in times from the Renaissance to the 30s and right up to the present. In “It’s Christmas and It’s Live!,” set in the 1950s, an energetic quartet getting their big break on a TV variety show is about to get an even bigger break as a blizzard shuts down New York and showbiz pandemonium ensues inside the studio. Featuring the music of the season, Festival of Christmas will be enjoyed by the entire family.
“It’s Christmas and It’s Live!” is written by Lamb’s Players’ resident playwright Kerry Meads. Directed by Associate Artistic Director Deborah Gilmour Smyth, the cast includes Glynn Bedington, Jacob Caltrider, Season Marshall Duffy, Courtney Evans, Ryan Fahey, David Cochran Heath, Kerry Meads, Nick Spear, Rebecca Spear, and Clay Stefanki.
