An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until December 19, 2020
Bring the whole family to Gulfshore Playhouse this holiday season for two spirited productions from the theater’s STAR (Student Theatre Artists in Residence) Academy. Student actors participating in the academy’s after-school theater education program will first stage “Little Women” Dec. 4 through 6, followed by a production of “Ebenezer Junior” Dec. 17 through 19, 2020.
In “Ebenezer Junior,” Charles Dickens’s beloved and timeless tale “A Christmas Carol” comes to life in this one-act musical that blends modern musical styles in an original score. On one fateful night, the grumpy Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by ghosts who show him the consequences of his greed and selfishness. This iconic Christmas show reminds us all of the reason for the season, and as it comes to life in a brand-new way in this musical version, the story of Ebenezer Scrooge has never sounded better.
Written by Malcolm Sircom, “Ebenezer Junior” will feature STAR Academy students ages 8 to 18 on stage and will be directed by Steven Calakos, Gulfshore Playhouse’s director of education. Evening performances for both productions will take place at 7:30 p.m., with Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20. To purchase tickets for either show, visit GulfshorePlayhouse.org.
