2013-12-09 · By Editor
GO-FAME invites you to celebrate the season at their new holiday show, “Mrs. Claus and the Christmas Star”. Talented local youth, ages 8-18, make up the cast of this musical merriment written by John Blaylock, with direction and choreography by Adrienne Marquand and musical direction by Jared Pugh. This spirited adventure has only three performances, Saturday, December 21 at 2pm and 7pm and Sunday, December 22 at 2pm. All performances take place at the GO-FAME Studio.
This delightful tale follows Mrs. Claus and her assisting yet sometimes bumbling elves as they travel to Long Beach to bestow the famed Christmas Star upon “the most spirited city in the world”…although it’s not as easy as it sounds! Throughout the twisting tale, audience members will enjoy holiday carols both old and new and may even participate in a sing along or two.
“GO-FAME has earned the reputation of producing shows that are quality entertainment for the whole family and Mrs. Claus definitely fits that bill,” said Elaine Zofrea, GO-FAME’s artistic director. “I encourage anyone who is looking for some family-friendly, holiday fun to come and see this show. It is a really great way to get into the spirit of the season.”
Tickets for “Mrs. Claus and the Christmas Star” are $10 for general admission seating and are on sale now. With only three performances, early tickets purchase is recommended but tickets will also be available at the door. All performances will be at the GO-FAME Studio located in Parkcrest Center at 3960 N. Studebaker Road, Unit 106, Long Beach, CA 90808.
