Best enjoyed by All Ages

This event has passed.

You’re invited to a beautiful Victorian Holiday party—but be prepared to check your coat, and all sense of tradition, at the door, because anything can happen in this high-spectacle, glamorously shameless musical comedy. We’re really not supposed to say, but there may be… A kiss cam? Cake? T-shirt cannons? Jokes ripped straight from the headlines? Absolutely yes! With a track list filled with modern pop hits and an updated script that spins stunning elegance into madcap, sidesplitting comedy at high speed, this is one party you won’t want to miss!
