Giving thanks with ‘A Christmas Spectacular’
The fourth annual “A Christmas Spectacular” will hit the stage this coming Thanksgiving weekend.
Molly Dies’ Dance Express Company will perform a “hometown, high-kicking, heart-warming Warren Christmas tradition” at the Struthers Library Theatre on November 29 and 30, and December 1.
“A Christmas Spectacular” is inspired by the Radio City show brought right to your hometown theatre.
“It is a well-put-together, professional, lively, colorful, amazing, spectacular singing and dancing musical taking you through the journey of saving Christmas. Santa has lost his belief, but the elves, dancers, brother, and sister will help him get it back,” said Dies.
The spectacular is a completely local show; local director, local story writer, local actors, and local dancers.
“Our town holds so much talent and we’re excited to bring that talent to a stage near you,” said Dies.
The show came to life four years ago when Warren residents, Dies, her mother, and show writer Samantha LaFate shared a Christmas vision. It is filled with Rockette-style moves, a dance-filled sleigh ride with elves, dancing bears, gingerbread men, and more.
The spectacular is suitable for all ages, is approximately 90-minutes long, and has a 15-minute intermission.
The showings will be on Friday, Nov. 29, at 7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 30, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 1, at 2 p.m.
Tickets are on sale online at www.strutherslibrarytheatre.com, at the theatre office, and at the box office on the show days. Tickets will also be available at Molly Dies’ Dance Express Company studio this coming week. Prices are $20 for adults and $15 for dancers, students, and senior citizens and are good for anyone of the four shows.
“I’ve had a blast working with these kids and adults, such a great group of people,” said Dies. “We’re all very excited to have our show Thanksgiving weekend, with so many out-of-town family and friends in town, it’s a great way to kick off one’s holiday season.”
