A SPECIAL HOLIDAY EVENT–The Marvelous Wonderettes: WINTER WONDERETTES

BY POPULAR DEMAND

You asked for it, we listened. One of our most highly requested audience favorite productions, by popular demand, returns in a new holiday version! The original cast and original production team of last season’s smash hit THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES return for the holidays with the WINTER WONDERETTES. Picking up six months after the original show ends, the Wonderettes again save the day when the scheduled entertainment fails to show at the Harper’s Hardware annual holiday party, as they transform the store into a magical Winter Wonderland and serve up another evening of beloved 60s pop Christmas classics from the likes of Darlene Love, Brenda Lee, the Ronnettes, and more. Featuring holiday favorites like “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”, “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town, “Jingle Bell Rock”, and “Winter Wonderland”, come back and join us for another memorable evening with Missy, Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, and Suzy. The results will again be, of course, marvelous! This energetic and glittering holiday package is guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages.

“The perfect Christmas revue! Crackles with energy and joy!” –LA Weekly

FOR THE HOLIDAYS: A CHRISTMAS STORY, the Musical

November 16 – December 2, 2018

Book by Joseph Robinette.
Music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
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.

Directed by Laurie Starkey
Musical Direction by Stephanie Cvach
Choreographed by Amanda Poxon

Just in time for the holidays, Tidewater Players is thrilled to provide the area premiere of this family musical based on the classic movie that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas with Music and Lyrics by Academy, Tony, and Grammy Award winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan Hansen, La La Land). 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. Featuring all the iconic scenes from the movie—the tongue on the flagpole, the ridiculously impractical snowsuit, the bullies, the bunny suit, and the iconic leg lamp award, as well as many others—this delightful holiday treasure for the whole family will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and touch and entertain those who are experiencing it for the first time.

Tidewater Players, The Resident Community Theatre of Havre de Grace

Tidewater Players is a community theatre group based in the beautiful and historic town of Havre de Grace, Maryland. For 35 years we performed exclusively in the Havre de Grace Opera House on Union Avenue. After two years of performing pop up theatre in various venues throughout Harford County due to the extensive renovations at the building, we are happy to be back home in our position as resident theatrical company in the expanded and refurbished new Cultural Center at the Opera House at 121 N. Union Avenue in Havre de Grace. No longer exclusively the home of Tidewater Players, there will be many other cultural events and even other theatrical companies passing through. Because of this, and to make sure you receive the quality you have come to expect from Tidewater Players productions, we recommend you follow all our news and information on productions here or on our Facebook page linked below (and shown at right), as well as purchase your tickets through the link above.

Please take a moment to join our mailing list below, to be sure to receive updates on new shows and auditions as they become available.

Thank you for supporting the arts in Havre de Grace and Harford County!
