A NEW CHRISTMAS TALE ON STAGE IN TRAPPE
Look out Nutcracker! Step aside Scrooge, Frosty and Mr. Grinch. Here comes The Goose! Family Stages brings a delightful new Christmas story to the families of Collegeville, Trappe, Pottstown and beyond. The Holiday Goose! is a hilarious tale of old Italy, spiced up with song and dance. Two bumbling servants are sent to purchase a gaggle of geese for a Christmas banquet. On the way home they let the main course escape. These holiday geese are not “a-laying”. They are “a-running” over hill, over dale, through the plaza around the fountain – through the fountain! Every attempt by the klutzy duo to retrieve the escapees only makes matter worse. Christmas dinner is in danger of becoming takeout!
Playwright Steve Seyfried has provided a laugh-a-minute script based on the characters and plots of Italy’s classic comic theatre. Charles Gilbert’s spirited tunes and witty lyrics add to the fun. The Holiday Goose! is another rollicking, two-actor production from Family Stages. For over 30 years the company has delighted generations of theatre-goers with their marvelous blend of fast-paced action, clever dialogue and imaginative staging.
There will be two performances of The Holiday Goose! in Trappe, Friday, December 14 at 10 AM and Saturday, December 15 at 11 AM. The performances take place at Augustus Lutheran Church, 717 W. Main Street, Trappe, PA. Tickets are $10. They can be reserved by contacting Family Stages at 215-886-9341 or email@example.com.
In January Family Stages will bring Cinderella to the stage in Trappe. The series of family-friendly plays including The Jungle Book and Puss in Boots will continue through April. The complete schedule of performances can be found at www.familystages.org
