#315 – “A Christmas Survival Guide” at Dunwoody’s Stage Door Players – An Uproarious Look at Surviving Single Life During the Holidays, Through December 19, 2010
Are you trying to make it as a single guy or gal during the holiday season – or do you know someone who is? If you answered yes, like the three characters in this laugh-a-minute musical comedy, then you may also need a copy of A Christmas Survival Guide.
Featuring three favorites in the Atlanta community – Marcie Millard, Craig Waldrip and Wendy Melkonian (pictured, at right, from left to right) – A Christmas Survival Guide is a collection of vignettes that are sometimes heartwarming, sometimes harried, and always hilarious – from taking the reins on a sleigh-ride through the park, to throwing a party where no one shows up, to making a visit to Santa Claus as an adult and asking for things like a new septic tank and contributions to your 401(k) but finding romance instead.
Directed by Stage Door’s Artistic Director, Robert Egizio, with Musical Direction by Linda Uzelac and Choreography by Anthony Owen, A Christmas Survival Guide is a fast-moving, fun look at the holidays in today’s busy world.
There are two more weekends and eight more chances for you to see “A Christmas Survival Guide” – performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 PM, and Sunday afternoon matinees at 2:30 through December 19, 2010. For tickets, you should visit the Stage Door Players website; tickets are available online through tix.com. For questions, you can call the Box Office at 770-396-1726.
Stage Door Players, Dunwoody’s only professional theatre company, was founded in 1974 as a Community Improvement Project of the Dunwoody Woman’s Club. The intimate space of the theatre, which holds just around 100 patrons, makes seeing a show at State Door an experience like no other. With stadium seating only four rows deep that borders two sides of the stage, there’s not a bad seat in the house and patrons can truly feel like they are a part of the show. See you at the Stage Door!
