Little theatre putting on Christmas show

Pike County Little Theatre cast members are seen in a recent dress rehearsal for their Christmas show, which opens Thursday.


The Pike County Little Theatre will put on its annual Christmas show “Christmas in Tinsletown,” 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

The show is a mixture of favorite Christmas songs from various movies such as “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” “Home Alone 1 and 2” and “Miracle on 34th Street.”

“It’s like a red carpet event, kind of like the American Music Awards,” PCLT member Jennifer Temple said, adding that favorite characters will answer questions from Ignatius Thistlewhite.

Featured characters include the Grinch, Santa Claus, Frosty the Snowman, Buddy the Elf, Ebenezer Scrooge and Cousin Eddie.

She said the show is the brain child of her and her husband, Ryan Temple.

Temple said it’s a show meant to be humorous and fun for the entire family. She said it’s something that both kids and adults will enjoy.

“We do one to two songs from each movie,” she said.

Some of the songs performed are: “Mele Kalikimaka,” “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” “Santa Baby,” “Back in Town,” “Silver and Gold,” “White Christmas,” “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Auld Lang Syne.”

She said during “Santa Baby,” the girls will all gather around and sing to Santa Claus. Temple said she also think that the adults will enjoy Cousin Eddie from “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.”

“He’ll have on a white robe with a cigar and a moose glass. I think adults will think he’s funny,” she said.

She said the play caters to everyone. “This play is for anyone who loves Christmas,” Temple said.

She said before the show, the box office and Rhonda’s Limelight cafe will open an hour before the show begins.

Temple said tickets are $10 for adults are $5 for children under 10. She said tickets can be purchased at Edgewood Interiors and W.I.N.G.S.
