A Christmas Story

Based on the motion picture A Christmas Story distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark, and upon In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash written by Jean Shepherd. Produced with permission of Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures and Dalfie Entertainment. This musical, which received rave reviews on its Broadway run, is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas. Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, the musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts—an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here: Ralphie's friend, Flick, getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole; his brother, Randy, getting dressed in his snowsuit; the bullies, Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit; the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others.

Little Women

Produced nationally and internationally, Little Women has been praised by critics for its ambition in adapting such a well-known story for the stage. This timeless, captivating story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love. The original production starred the unparalleled Sutton Foster, who received Tony, Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk nominations for her performance. Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America. Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit. Little Women features plenty of great opportunities for female actors and singers ranging in age from teenage to 60 years old. The show also has a flexible cast size that can include as few as ten or as many as 42 people! The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice.

Winter Wonders: The Magic of Robby Bennet

AFTER SELLING OUT LAST YEAR, HE'S BACK IN A BIGGER THEATER WITH BIGGER ILLUSIONS... A MAGICAL HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE FOR ALL AGES... Your perception of time will be altered. The elements will be manipulated. And your impression of what is possible will be shattered. All of this and much more happens over the course of one show with the performer Free Press Houston calls “One of the most celebrated illusionists going.” Magician Robby Bennett started performing professionally at the age of twelve, after being ill with a debilitating disease for two years, and started building his corporate clientele the following year at the age of just thirteen. He has also performed from The Las Vegas Strip to New York and almost anywhere you can imagine, including East Africa. Bennett brings an unapologetic wit to his performances that sets him apart from his contemporaries and makes his amazing skills that much more unforgettable. Bennett has positioned himself as magic's “leading man” and takes the stage with a presence and skill set that has left many audiences on their feet in applause. Robby has been able to maintain a steady performing schedule at corporate events, private parties, universities, banquets, and charity events since he was in middle school. Currently Robby performs regularly at different events and theaters all over the country and is considered by many to be one the top performers in his field. "Robby Bennett is a young performer breathing new vitality into an old art form and engaging audiences with a renewed sense of wonder. The young Texan is pushing the boundaries of peoples' expectations of a stage magic show, and is someone worth seeing live while he performs locally. [...] His approach helps to restore a sense of mystery to the proceedings since modern audiences demand more than they might have in the past." -HOUSTON PRESS On December 23rd Robby Bennett will perform his spellbinding routines that have left audiences emotionally charged, astounded, and laughing to tears. And to top it off... The Audience is HIS CO-STAR! During the course of one show, Bennett will tell gripping stories and hilarious anecdotes as narrations to astonishing magical feats, alter your conception of time and the impact of your own imagination. He will also take someone out of the crowd and turn him into a genuine magician with his own routines and production in a matter of minutes – That's one you have to see! “I had to take out my levitation of an infant over burning spikes. It apparently made people too nervous and I got some letters,” says Bennett. Unlike what you might expect from typical a "magic show," Bennett has created the perfect blend of fantasy and comedy which has left preview audiences on their feet in applause. Bennett has made the typical evening of theatre disappear as he takes stage with his routines involving metaphor, allegory, and powerful storytelling. All of which is brought full circle throughout the evening. This is a new type of show modern audiences been waiting for. The impossible is simply overlooked and all logic is forgotten as you sit in the theatre in awe. *Disclaimer: For the duration of his performance, Mr. Bennett reserves the right to Febreze any children that may be in attendance and feed them Benadryl as he sees fit. *NOTE: Acts may change at the producer's discretion.

A Christmas Story

A young boy named Ralphie Parker only wants one thing for Christmas: a Red Ryder BB gun. However, he is not sure he will ever make it to Christmas, between his brother Randy and the school bully Scut Farkus. Whenever he tells someone how much he wants it, he/she tells him that he will shoot his eye out and refuses to get it for him. Even a department store Santa Claus tells him the same thing. After Ralphie gets a C+, he gets teased again by Scut. In response, Ralphie beats him very badly while cursing loudly. However, his parents do not get mad at him, and on Christmas morning, he gets the BB gun, since his father had one at that age. When he goes to try it out, the bullet ricochets and knocks off his glasses, which he accidentally steps upon while looking for them. He makes up a story about an icicle, and his parents believe him. In the end, a horde of dogs come in and steal the Christmas turkey, so his family goes out for Chinese turkey which is really duck.

Christmas in Comfort

Mona Malone, famous for her role as the “scream queen” in Hollywood horror flicks, must do 200 hours of community service. A judge is persuaded by Mona’s attorney to let her spend them directing the annual Christmas play in his tiny hometown of Comfort. When Mona and her pre-conceived ideas about small towns meet the wacky residents of Comfort and their pre-conceived ideas, sparks fly. The residents know exactly how they want to do the play — after all, they’ve been doing it exactly the same way for 20 years! But Mona wants big changes. As the work progresses, however, it’s the town that changes Mona. She begins to make peace with her life, her goals, and the faith she had left behind. Along the way, Mona’s assistant finds her voice and the local drama teacher remembers her own lesson of what theater can give to the actors and the audience — even in a small town far from Broadway. Laughter and the traditional music of Christmas fill the stage with warmth as the people of Comfort help Mona learn a big lesson about fame, faith, and the fact that a long time ago in Bethlehem, a child was born for everyone — including the famous Mona Malone.
