Twisted cheer in BAT’s comedy ‘The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged)’
Celebrate the season with a tour de force in which three actors do absolutely everthing in the irreverently heartwarming comedy The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged) at Burien Actors Theatre Nov. 25 through Dec. 18.
The Burien Actors Theatre production features specialty drinks themed to the show and plenty of free on-site parking, plus an opening night party.
“THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS SHOW (ABRIDGED)”
It’s the Annual Holiday extravaganza at St. Everybody’s Non-Denominational Universalist Church. But bad weather has barred the scheduled acts from arriving. So three church members have to perform the entire pageant themselves. This irreverent trip through the holidays promises a good time gift-wrapped in song, parody and delightfully twisted holiday cheer—along with an elf ballet. If you liked The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), you’ll love this tour de force for three actors.
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. at Burien Actors Theatre, located at 14501 4th Ave SW in Burien.
Ticket prices range from $7 to $20. Student tickets are just $10. Enjoy an early Christmas present with opening weekend deals: Tickets on opening night, Nov. 25, include free admission to the opening night party.
On Saturday, Nov. 26, all tickets are half price and on Sunday, Nov. 27, known as Seven Buck Sunday, admission is just $7.
