Grab your Santa hat and scarf and head out for a holiday treat at the Sapulpa Community Theatre.

The theatre opens Every Christmas Ever Told … And Then Some Friday, Dec. 2, and it promises to be a night of hilarity and laughs that know no bounds. The show continues to run Dec. 3-4, 9-11 with performances at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturday, Dec. 3, and 2 p.m. Sundays and Saturday, Dec. 10.

“We have the special performance on Dec. 10 to allow our patrons the opportunity to see the annual Sapulpa Christmas Parade as well as the show,” said Lorrie Quinnelly, the theatre’s production director. “They can actually see the show, have an early dinner at one of our local restaurants, and still stake out a great spot for the parade. It’s a wonderful chance to spend a Saturday in Sapulpa, maybe even take in a little shopping prior to the show.”

The show stars Luke Atkins, Phillip Coleman, Steve James, and Stephen Ryan, and is directed by Sherry Whisman. The public is invited to attend. For reservations, call the theatre at (918) 227-2169.

Written by John K. Alvarex, Michael Carleton and James FitzGerald, Every Christmas Ever Told…And Then Some tells the story of four actors who have grown tired of the routine production of Charles Dickens’ beloved tale, A Christmas Carol. So rather than performing that Christmas Standard for the umpteenth time, the actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told…plus a few Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient days to current pop culture, and every Christmas carol ever sung. The result is a madcap romp through the holiday season with all the bells and whistles.

“We laugh every night,” Whisman said. “I’ve seen this now dozens of times, and I still laugh. They (the actors) are so funny.”

“This show promises to be a fun-filled night with plenty of comedy for the whole family,” Quinnelly said. “The Grinch even makes it into this show. It’s a great way to kick off the holiday with family and friends.”
